"KGB Museum" KGB Headquarters Lubyanka Tip by hslowe

KGB Headquarters Lubyanka, Moscow: 30 reviews and 40 photos

  At the KGB museum
by hslowe

The Federal Security Service (FSB) headquarters building is the gray one to the left of the Lubyanka's main building.

Since 1984, when the KGB started trying to improve its public image, tourists have been able to visit a KGB museum. And since the Soviet collapse in 1991, Russia's intelligence agencies have tried to create an impression of openness, giving guided tours through the yellow Lubyanka.

I did not tour the Lubyanka, but I did tour the KGB musuem. We found that it's open to group tours only, not individual tourists. It took about two and a half hours to see and was well worth the time. In fact, it was a highlight of my Moscow experience...especially since they bring out a real live FSB agent at the end to answer your questions.
