This is an excellent collection and is well worth a visit. Also has a nice little good value cafe.

A huge building stuffed with cannons, swords, radios, missiles, etc. It has one spectacular thing: a showpiece Royal War Chariot.

Great military gift shop (models, games, books) as well as a memoribilia shop where they sell genuine articles. I also saw a small firing range but I did not have time to try it.

Marches play over the loudspeaker in the courtyard, which is littered with howitzers and rocket launchers. The whole place is quite an experience, but only for the dedicated.

Lots and lots of stuff for military buffs. True appreciation of all that is exhbited, though, is hampered by the fact that all the narrative displays are only in Russian.

Weapons and artillery old and new. You will like this place especially if you are Kalichnikov fan: they have a whole room dedicated to him (stuff includes his doctoral cap and gown) and a spercimen of every single one of his AK models. Plus even a jeep named the Kalichnikov

The museum is placed in a central location, in the northern part of the Petropavlovskaya Krepost, in a spectacular three-storey fortified barracks building which would be worth a visit on its own. Outside and inside, you can find dozens of artillery pieces ranging from the Napoleonic era to modern SAM and SS missile weapons.
There are some thematic exhibits, too. We were delighted when seeing a huge set of memorabilia gathered here to celebrate the 90th birthday of Mr. Kalashnikov, which contained of several AK-47 rifles of various manufacture and finish, plus Kalashnikov watches, ties etc. Also, there's an interesting primer on rocket and missile weapons, and many pieces from the Napoleon's invasion of Russia.
Outside, don't miss the ballistic missile set which is hidden behind the left wing of the building and visible from the road.
