  • Imperial era, Russia revolution and understand after the collapse of Soviet-era, and ease k trade fair. Armored cars are exhibited in the front yard. Exhibition of the Russo-Japanese war and without 1 room and felt a surprising lost to Japan is the authority of the Emperor lost dropping the high that came in the wake of the collapse of Imperial Russia is positioned. Where comes the Pushkinskaya station of the Metro line 7, and is now. Facing tuveruskaya Street coming up from the Kremlin.

  • Looks elegant buildings, such as the small Palace was inside became a Museum of history of the war grew. Because tubers Kaya street location was very accessible. I was lit up after sunset, Russia flags and red, white and blue colors are illuminated, but the original building brick by brick pink so cheesy love impression.

  • It is true that it serves to understand a little more and better the recent history of Russia, but as history museum perhaps is a little short in the development of historical events. Some rooms, like the war with Japan in 1905 or the famous revolutionary movement of 17, is left almost nothing taking into account how vital that these chapters to the history of the country... As a global idea that became broadly ok, but I missed in missing deepening.
