A virtual tour of the museums of Moscow

A virtual tour of the museums of Moscow

“What progress has reached” is a common phrase that has acquired new meanings during a pandemic. Busy people have found the long-desired opportunity to see world masterpieces without leaving the table. Moscow museums have opened their virtual doors so that anyone who wants to wander through the corridors of the Tretyakov Gallery, see famous paintings with their own eyes and learn the legends of knowledge decorated with stucco molding. People of different ages, preferences and levels of interest in art and history will find the tour to their liking.

Victory Museum

This institution is the largest in the country dedicated to the history and chronology of military operations. The area is 14 thousand square meters. The open area houses 300 pieces of equipment, including tanks, anti-aircraft and artillery mounts, aircraft and others. It is unlikely that it will be possible to thoroughly examine this technique during a day, but from a computer screen it is possible! Each floor of the covered part of the museum is dedicated to a separate topic:

  • Fourth floor - Holocaust victims
  • Third - Halls of Fame, Heroes and Guardsmen
  • The second - sculptures by Zurab Tsereteli, dedicated to the command staff
  • On the ground floor there are rooms of Historical Truth, Sorrow and Memory.

You can virtually wander through the halls of the museum on your own, or with a guide.
