The best place to plunge into the atmosphere of that period is the Soviet Lifestyle Museum. With the help of various artifacts the museum makes it easy to understand the USSR a little bit better.

When you get to the museum don’t miss the Soviet Secondary School exposition - there you can witness the miniconcentration camp Soviet kids had to go through to learn a thing or two about life. The gallery of socialist art will give you a good introduction to the sublime frequencies that were affecting the consciousness of the more creative people.
Finish with the collection of Soviet propaganda books to get a dosage of ideological brainwash in style. Open 11.00 to 19.00 daily.
