The State Historical Museum

The country's history in one museum.

In the middle of Red Square, a gigantic and majestic red brick building stands out that houses the history museum. By walking round the rooms which house a large collection from the paleolithic era up to the present, you'll find out everything that happened in this country first hand from the 22,000 objects that make up its permanent exhibition. It's impossible to see everything in a couple of days, so if you're visit to Moscow is a short one, we recommend you to see the rooms that most interest you. In each one of the rooms, there is also an informative point where you can see everything that occurred in that particular historic period in one look, without having to go round the pieces in the collection one by one.
