Great display of centuries worth of military equipment. As like most museums in Russia, you can get up very close to exhibits and pictures are no issue. Descriptions are all in Cyrillic but you can figure out most things from the dates.

This is a fine collection of Russian artillery over the centuries. It goes through the ages of cannons to more modern missile launchers. Don't thing we would want to pick a war against them. A good visit for military lovers.

One of the larger and older military museums, which also implies you'd be better off with a guide to make sense of the more esoteric pieces (such as early steam-powered cannon prototypes, shaming masks, medieval executioner swords, engineering tools and methods, etc). The dioramas are...More

Set aside at least four hours for this visit and longer if you speak Russian as there is so much explanatory literature with the exhibits. As non Russian speakers, but with some very basic reading skills, we struggled to understand much of the written word,...More

We will come again. One of the most interesting museum in Saint-Petersburg. A lot of tanks and cannons outside. Huge amount of information regarding exhibition inside. Most of things are allowed to touch! Additional exhibitions inside are very interesting (today was Kalashnikov and some another).
