On Sunday 9 May 1993 in Moscow the Poklonnaya (Paklonna) Hills memorial was officially opened by Boris Yeltsin as the culmination of the celebrations of victory over Germany in May 1945. A huge display of Soviet military hardware was assembled at the memorial complex at Victory Park in the City. The focus of the exhibition was directed towards equipment of the Second World War era, but the Russian Army also provided some examples of modern artillery and multiple rocket launcher systems. The Air Force was represented with a static display of WW2 fighter aircraft.
A small number of German, Japanese and British armoured vehicles was assembled to balance the display, which was attended by thousands of Muscovites. Equipment for the Exhibition was provided by the Russian Army, from the Kubinka collection and from some smaller collections. Much of the equipment on display had been immaculately restored, though the vehicles had their hatches welded shut and small external fittings removed.
This exhibition was preparatory to the opening of a completely new museum on the site. The museum building itself was officially opened on 9 May 1995 and houses an indoor display of military dioramas. Prior to this the exhibition display was extensively revised and moved to an area behind the museum building. There are now new displays encompassing army, air and naval exhibits around the park, including a new armoured vehicle display area.
