Military Historical Artillery Museum, St. Petersburg

(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Gain an appreciation of the history of Russia's military weaponry at Military Historical Artillery Museum. Peter the Great opened the museum in 1703 with an exhibit of a cannon cast by Andrei Chokhov, a renowned cannon and bell caster during the reign of Ivan the Terrible. The museum boasts a collection ranging from the 15th century to the present, with weapons, armor, and military uniforms from Russia and Europe. Keep your eye out for the personal effects and arms of Russian emperors, Napoleon’s personal arms used during his disastrous invasion of Russia, and a gallery devoted to the AK-47 and its designer. The museum contains very little information in English.

  • In the museum itself and are not logged. Because the review is not exclusively about the place, and the Organization and awareness of employees. Came to output, going into the Museum generally first losing yourself where to go, no plate-everywhere people go. Then a little looking around you find the ticket office, where we took preliminary tickets without waiting in line to learn whether you can go in the clothes because in wardrobe with two sides were two unreal long queues, the cashier gave us welcome. We went to the Hall and the controller said that in outerwear is not allowed, but without the top clothing as there not present very cold if you go during the cold season, dress warmly. We stood in the queue to take the clothes and went 15 minutes does not actually move from their seats went to donate tickets because there could be up to face rent clothes and then its the same take. Returned to an open installation the child climb everywhere and got pleasure-and this is the most important thing. So comrades, weekdays only and in the morning! All pleasant visits! P.s. Anny

  • I must say that I am not a fan of military equipment, but the Museum, many halls with different exposures, you can touch a lot. Tickets low and pay for the photos. There is also a café. This museum worth a visit when you visit Peter.
