Museum of weapons in Tula Kremlin

Description

Museum of weapons in Tula Kremlin 

Epiphany Cathedral is a former Cathedral in the Tula Kremlin, which now houses the Tula state Museum of weapons.

The Cathedral was built in 1862 in memory of the fallen soldiers in the war of 1812. The creator of the Russian style in church building of the nineteenth century (in which is erected the Cathedral of the Epiphany) is the architect Konstantin Ton, the author of the project of the temple of Christ the Savior. The author of the Epiphany Cathedral is Tula architect M. Mikhailov. The dome is painted by Moscow icon painter Simeon Borisov. The Cathedral fits in perfectly with the architectural ensemble of the Tula Kremlin:

On 16 February 1930 the Cathedral of the Epiphany was closed. Four little domes were demolished and the main dome was rebuilt for new needs. In the 1960-ies it was decided to place the Tula state Museum of weapons in the Cathedral. The entrance to the Museum was built from the east by breaking the wall of the altar and making a brick outhouse. It was installed reinforced concrete monolithic slab, after which the building became two-storied. The new building of the Tula Museum of arms was erected in March 2012. This is a six-storey building with a dome in the form of heroic helmet of a Russian soldier is located on the opposite side of the river. To date (April 2015) part of the exposure is already transferred to the new museum, but Epiphany Cathedral still has a permanent exhibition. Outside, the building is being restored.

The first floor is dedicated to the cold arms of the East:

Everything of value was moved to the new Museum, the exhibits were quite sad, in a building of some kind of terrible devastation, very uncomfortable. Not even worth the time to spend, it is better to go to the Museum-helmet.

In the late 70-ies the building of the former Cathedral of the Epiphany in the territory of the Tula Kremlin was transferred to an arms factory, as the number of exhibits was very high and could not be accommodated at the plant

The collection of the Museum gives the opportunity to trace the evolution of arms since the late 16 century. Among the exhibits of firearms and edged weapons. The exposition is the product of the Tula arms factory.
