Tula State Museum of Weapons, Tula
(4.8/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Housed in a former gun factory, Tula State Museum of Weapons plays home to an extensive collection of firearms, swords, and other tools of war from both Russia and around the world. Explore the museum's holdings, which originated from Peter the Great's personal armory during the late 18th century, and you'll get a glimpse of weapon development and production from throughout the past five centuries, up to the modern day. View everything from ceremonial cavalry swords to muskets to contemporary weapons including the ubiquitous AK-47 assault rifle. Keep in mind the fact that, as Tula used to be one of Russia's most important arms-production areas, many of the objects within the museum emerged from the very factory you're touring.

  • In Tulu, I this time was iskljuchitkl'no out of a desire to visit this museum. The time was early, weekday, so not many people were mostly visitors were 3 small guided groups of schoolchildren. Faced with the sad experience of independent museums of Moscow, here I have decided not to save money and take a picture, but in the process of examination of the exposition was in it totally disappointed, expectations are only common phrases and moments that spoken on interactive whiteboards! About exhibits, information still had to draw from each Tablet PC installation, the benefit was time is poorly populated. The exposition itself very much, it is extensive, well lit, replete with objects of different epochs. Early difficulties with the recommended route inspection, as simply not found ... But then he found and the case is OK) in general except the headphones I'm Museum was very pleased.
