Victims of Communism

About the museum

We Must Remember

The Victims of Communism Museum is dedicated to commemorating the more than 100 million victims of Communism around the world and to those pursuing freedom from totalitarian regimes.



Witness the rise of Communism, the terror of Lenin and Stalin, the growth of the tragic Gulag system, the eastward expansion of Communism, and share in the inspiring stories of those fighting against the most deadly ideology man has ever created.
