One of Ukraine's most extensive exhibitions, Great Patriotic War Museum memorializes the Soviet Union's battle against Nazi Germany during World War II and displays a host of military artifacts. Visit the museum and explore its more than 300,000 exhibits dispersed throughout cavernous halls. You'll see weapons, documents, personal effects, and a wealth of other items from World War II. The museum's most famous symbol outside is hard to miss: a 62 m (203 ft) titanium "Motherland" statue depicting a woman with a sword and shield. Don't miss the outdoor exhibitions of military hardware, including armored personnel carriers, Cold War-era jets, and even some brightly painted tanks.

Pretty impressive. If you want to visit any of the platforms, go inside and you'll find a ticket counter to your right. Went for the "extreme" tour (as they call it). Costs are 10€; includes the museum. You can sign up for a tour every hour, but only 2 people at once. You'll see why if you decide to go for the extreme tour. Recommended.
One of the best museums we've every been to. Although most of the text is in Ukrainian, there are plenty of updates in English (and French and German, I think?) throughout the exhibitions. Fascinating place. Would definitely recommend.
