The Kalashnikov Museum was built in Izhevsk city in 2004. It contains not only Mikhail Kalashnikovâ€™s â€œworksâ€ but also other arms that have been produced in this city for the last 200 years.
At the entrance of the museum some samples of the main Russian arms are exhibited (beginning with a simple infantry gun and ending with a submachine gun called â€œAkabanâ€).
A pretty guide tells the visitors about the Kalashnikovâ€™s life.
Through the glass of the numerous windows you can see the arm samples of different times, German and other foreign arms.
And this is the Kalashnikov assault rifle (1964).
The AKM (Kalashnikov assault rifle modernized).
And the modern ones â€“ AK-74 and AK-100.
Aviation gun firing at the speed of 12000 shots per minute.
The most interesting thing about this museum is a shooting range where you can try any exhibit youâ€™ve seen in the windows.
