Military Historical Artillery Museum, St. Petersburg

4.2
#20 of 203 in Museums in St. Petersburg
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.

    I must say that the primary impression technique outside and Hall to the legendary Kalashnikov. Everything else-you have to be very passionate fan. Outside various heavy equipment (guns, howitzers, anti-aircraft guns, tanks, missiles, radar installation) so many units of equipment. Of course, I want to come to touch, rotate, but you cannot access and Organization (milota staff, like many services in our country causes dismay and sympathy. all malicious, vulgar, residents of Russia's cultural capital. (probably going to copy it from a post in the post, was today in Peterhof) Kalashnikov strikes many different exhibits, presents the legendary developer and a description of his life. So if you still think-General recommendation-go. On interestingness for boys would be a better option than the Peter and Paul Fortress.
