National Museum of Modern Russian History

Interesting
The exhibits of the State Central Museum of Contemporary History of Russia are both dense and well explained, if somewhat anecdotic. Sections are devoted to the Russian-Japanese War of 1905 and the proclamation of the Russian Federation in the 1990s. Objects of daily life illustrate the changing regimes. By 1917 there was already a museum of the Revolution in this late-18C classical palace, once the headquarters of the English Club and popular with the Muscovite elite.
