Museum of the Patriotic War 1812
The new museum exhibition space is as big as 1800 square meters. On a large scale and as detailed as possibly it reflects the events of the whole historical epoch in its numerous exhibits (over 2000). They include paintings, drawings, sculpture, maps, documents, household items, numismatics, banners, awards, uniforms, equipment and weapons of the opposing parties. Here you can find real trophies, like Napoleon’s army field kitchen, a complete set of his orders, the folding camp bed of the great Corsican and the sleigh, which he used to leave our capital!
The museum pays particular attention to Alexander I and Napoleon, the two emperors, who greatly contributed to the development of political and military events.
