Description of Artillery Museum in Saint Petersburg

 

Artillery Museum of Saint Petersburg is located in the historic Kronverk Fortress on the Petrogradskaya side of the city near Peter and Paul Fortress. First Artillery pieces were simply dumped here in 1703 after they were damaged in battles or during trials. First orderly Artillery Museum was established on this spot in 1756 to give collection of artillery pieces some historic order and value. Today Artillery Museum of Saint Petersburg greatly expanded. It houses a vast collection of military artifacts ranging from ancient guns, medieval guns as well as modern long- range missiles from the 20th century. The whole collection is located in 13 halls inside the main building. In November 2002 Artillery Museum opened open air museum in the courtyard of Kronverk. It keeps a collection of heavy weapons including tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles, artillery pieces. Artillery Museum periodically hosts various exhibitions, lectures and excursions.
