At Moscow's Museum of Contemporary History, visitors follow the story of Russia from the end of Romanov rule through present times; it also contains an extraordinary Soviet-era porcelain collection, personal items from Lenin, Stalin, and Brezhnev, re-created Soviet apartments, and entire rooms full of World War II artifacts.
