Tula State Museum of Weapons, Tula

4.8
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.

    Really liked it a lot of exhibits of different generations, in an interactive monitor, read the information on the submitted exhibits the Museum has a pneumatic tyre with different types of weapons (on the ground floor at the location of the storage chambers). For children there is a children's room with real weapons from handguns to PPSH, helmets, field uniforms, caps.

    The Museum really liked-new building small exposition of machinery on the street and two floors of weapons in the building. The exposition unique presence prototypes (very interesting to see what could be the TT). Oh and presented World samples. A very extensive collection of hunting weapons! Decals on the stands are not always easy to find, tablets with the electronic version often crash from many young computer geniuses ((a wonderful free nursery! Souvenirs for every taste! Wi-Fi is available. Parking is not near. But, in General, be sure to visit!

  • For the first time in this museum. Around the Museum area is wonderful, which complements the military equipment and busts of great people. In the Museum there are services such as: cash for purchasing tickets, ticket machine, snack bar, cinema (Conference-Hall), four exhibition halls, infirmary, souvenir shops, toilets, cloakrooms, a shooting range, storage for backpacks. In the exhibition halls are various types of weapons, some of them can touch, equipped with the latest technology to recreate the complete picture of the arms factory and another. Photo and video shooting can be made free of charge and is permitted in some areas. I advise everyone, even those who don't particularly interesting weapon, you won't be bored!
