The outdoor exhibition includes armoured vehicles BTR-70 and BRDM-2, ZIL-157, GAZ-66, and other cars, a blast shelter, a border guard cutter, naval mines, an anti-tank gun, a watchtower of the border guard, and radar and radio masts. A marine radar is located in the main building of the museum, at its original site. The exhibition also includes artillery shells, shell casings, helmets, caps and uniforms, means of communication, and civil defence equipment.
