German Helmets Pyramid
In addition to equipment and weapons, there are several halls showing the life of Leningraders in blockade. I didn’t get there, because the queue was a kilometer long. I was very surprised how many people were, given the fact that it was a weekday.

Museum address "LenReserv": St. Petersburg, Feodosia St., 4A. The only problematic way to get there, it only works for organized groups by appointment. Free access is possible only on holidays, for example, on the day of the lifting of the blockade. Another amazing thing is that the museum is free.
