Sometimes vacations can be hard on boys. There's a lot of museums, cathedrals, and historical significance that can be...saturating for youngsters. We try to accommodate our youngest ones by going to the zoo or aquarium on trips, but sometimes it's hard to find something that captures the imagination of young men.
Every sizable Russian city has the answer to this conundrum: A museum dedicated to the history of Russia's wars and the arms used in each. This museum is St Petersburg's. It's a truly impressive display of cannon, uniforms, radios, maps, banners, and vehicles.
Just across the street from the Peter and Paul fortress, it's very easy to visit. As noted in other reviews, there isn't a lot of foreign-language support...but the cannon and missiles sell themselves without translation.
