Russian Arms Museum

Russian arms museum in Tula

Russian town Tula was known for many years through history for a few things were told to be the best if bought from Tula.

Those were “samovars” – Russian giant tea pots, “pryaniki” – Russian gingerbread and “pushka” – Russian cannons as well as many more Russian small arms, like rifles for example. With the coming of modern times most of the traditional crafts become more and more forgotten but still they have some weapon factories and gingerbread bakeries there, so the legend still lives somehow.

That’s why one of the first points of interest which tourists have in Tula is arms museum.

6 thoughts on “Russian Arms Museum”

  1. Nice, but it appears to be at least a partial duplication of the big Artillery, Engineering and Signal Corps museum in St. Petersburg.

  2. Does anyone know what the statue is in Tula of the man with his shirt off in front of a steel factory? I think it was called the Tula man of steel or something like that?

  3. Tula was best in world in working with metal! Put shoes [with laces] on a flea’s feet. Craft man ship is not respected today. People just want to sit in office and boss others around. Collect bribes. Russia is in decline.

  4. I have just returned from seeing the arms museum at Tula,something I have wanted to do for some time. What can I say, the art galleries and museums of the former Soviet Union are world leaders in quality and presentation,simply outstanding in all respects. I expected this and was not let down.
