Overview

The Museum of Moscow is one of the oldest museums of the city. Its collection was established on the initiative of Russian scientific community in 1896. The Moscow City Duma gave it a large collection of exhibits. In the 20th century museum several times changed its name and location. In 1921 the museum was called Moscow Municipal Museum and was located in Sukharev Tower. In 1940 was renamed into the Museum of History and Reconstruction of Moscow. In 1987 the museum got its present name. The museum acquired more than one million articles depicting life in the city throughout its history, from Moscow’s ancient beginnings to the present day. This collection contains the archaeological finds, ancient tools, jewelry, bronze and stone items from most ancient period of Moscow history. There is a collection of maps and drafts which show how the city grew from year to year.

Lonely Planet's English-language guide praises this museum but does not mention that all the explanations I saw (as of today but, it seems, also at the time of publication) are in Russian. Even as someone who knows some Russian, I would not have rushed to...More

I wish I had read the reviews before going there so we wouldn't waste time getting to the museum as everything was in Russian only. It's a shame, as the museum and the permanent and temporary exhibitions looked amazing and with Moscow's rich history we...More

The most interesting part of Russian history, the 19th and 20th century, is not object of this museum. The earlier history is displayed very much as it had been typical for museums, with a multitude of antique objects, any of them presenting only doubtful interest....More

This place is of great potential interest, as it is the only museum in town totally devoted to the long history of Moscow, how the town was built in the beginning and how it evolved. There are artifacts from very ancient times, medieval times and...More
