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.

I excpected a stuffy and boring exhibition of weapons, in which I'm not particularly interested in, however I got a thrilling and entertaining exhibition. The museum is very well designed, with many interactive pannels, hands-on sections and lots of information provided on the electronic pannels. Good gift-shop as well. I was surprised in the best possible manner. My thoughts after... More
