Military Review

Our memory. Armory temple of Tula. 3 part

In the final part of the story about armory In the treasures of Tula, we have placed everything that was not included in the first two parts. Including historical, XIX century. Anticipating some criticism about the fact that there are no signatures under many exhibits, we can say right away that the lighting in that hall was set in such a way that the transparent films with letters pasted on the glass were simply not readable by cameras. This is noticeable in several pictures. So, alas, just the beauty of the weapon, no comment.

Finishing our story, we want to say only one thing: if someone has the opportunity to visit Tula, and wants to visit two simply unmatched weapons stores, do not miss this opportunity. Full inspection will have to spend at least 4-5 hours, not counting the time to relocate from one to another. Better to start with the museum in the Kremlin, where you can buy a comprehensive ticket to visit both. It will be cheaper than separately. But the pleasure that can be obtained in the halls of museums, will more than pay for all the costs.

      Regarding fleas, this is a legend, but Lefty had a real prototype, Alexei Mikhailovich Surnin, chief mechanic at the Tula arms factory. He is buried in Tula, at the Chulkovsky cemetery.

    Thanks. It's not a pity to "lose" a day for such a museum. And the day will not be enough.
