Unfortunately we did not have time to go here, but our guide raved about it. We had set sights for our tour, but this was not one of them. We drove past it two days in a row and from the outside it looks spectacular....More

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
