The GULAG History State MuseumIt's estimated that 20 million people were persecuted in Soviet labor camps in 1930-1950 - in the so-called GULAG system. At the highest point of the terror, in the 1930s, victims accused of plotting against the Soviet power were executed en masse. Visit this unique museum to learn about life in Stalin's labor camps and read about the experiences and suffering of individual prisoners. Touch the cell doors and immerse yourself in the brutal Soviet terror.
