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.

  • Very impressive collection of power tools in combination with art-no weapons, and straight historical skilful ob'ekty. Very much and varied in one place! Boys-all necessarily here! This is a must see, rather than to describe! Disappointing as always-work time up to 18-0000 and with five hours in each room you are bald-faced customized-faster check out inspection! Recommendations for visitors-first view exhibition inside the building, then on the street!
