  • Really liked the "Kalashnikov Museum" is a very competent Exposition, tons of weapons, a beautifully decorated! In the basement shooting gallery:)

  • If the Tula Museum of weapons more tells about the history of weapons, this Museum focuses on the world-famous creator of the AK-47. The exposition dedicated to designer, pretty entertaining, I am glad that the information is presented in a graduated way: who wants to be able to read everything, but highlights selected, an interesting documentary. There is a shooting range with a huge price list, but unfortunately before the new year for some unknown reason did not work.

  • Optimal price and quality. Made a guide for 4 people (family 3 adult +1 REB). Duration 25-30 min. We're not shooting came-say no one minus the Museum-little locker room.
