    would be even more cool if the access would not be denied to non-russians (for whatever reason…)

    • wackyruss says:

      I’m a Non-Russian! We were not denied access! I’m an American! We saw the $hit outta that place!

      • mike says:

        yeah, but probably not this season…?

        • wackyruss says:

          Have relations between USA and Russia deteriorated this season so that nonRussians may not visit the WOIRLD OF TAHNKS!!! anymore?

          note: I spelled the WOIRLD of TAHNKS incorrectly because that is how our tour guide so enthusiastically pronounced it!

        The museum is on a military base and you need authorization to go on the base not into the museum. Me and a friend went to Kubinka, went to the guard shack and filled out a form, I gave them my passport and about 4 hours later (!!!!!!) an officer came by and asked a few questions and we hopped into a truck and they took us to the museum. It cost me $20, they did not allow me to take pictures because it was a 35mm camera. It helps to have a Russian friend with you because of language problems and not being from some model company like Tamiya. It also depends on what they are doing on the base too, if they’re busy you may not be able too. Avoid the tourist places, with a little luck you can see it yourself by going there. I was also offered a ride in a tank for $2000, I told them I didn’t bring my printing press. Ridiculous
