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.

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).
