If you are a group of 5 girls it would probably interesting for you but I'm not sure. We didn't have much fun. There are some multi-media things but that's it. Price didn't worth it.

We spent around 4 hours in this museum. It has a lot of latest and greatest electronic equipment, tablets, cool audio guides that are reading electronic labels and many computer games and holograms. it is one of the best contemporary museums that I've seen!

This a verry informative museum, it is in a total different set up than we see it in Western Europe. Modern building that shows many different weapon systems produced in the Tula area.

It must be the best museum I have ever visited, being a knowledge- thirsty -girl, I always want to widen my information. And the Tula state museum of weapon is the first place I taken first step when I was in Russian, and it worth much. Highly recommended this place, especially for some excursion.

Having visited the other weapons museum which was great, I expected this new one to be better. It wasn't but probably because it is still too new. At least they do have the language narrators which is a help, but only on a couple of floors at the moment. Very reasonable entrance fee and well worth a visit to kill... More

Another must-see place in Tula. Located near the Upa river, this museum is one of the favorite places to take photos by tourists and weddings. Inside you will find a lot of ancient and modern arms from Russia and other countries. One the first floor, near the entrance, you can buy some souvenirs and Tula gingerbreads.
