Historical museum dedicated to the Generalissimo of the Russian Empire Alexander Suvorov
Historical museum dedicated to the Generalissimo of the Russian Empire Alexander Suvorov. Alexander Vasilievich Suvorov is the first person in Russia in honor of whom a memorial museum was built. The museum was under construction in 1901-1904 on the Imperial pleasure of the Emperor Nikolay II. Donations for its construction arrived from wide circles of the military and civil public. The building of the museum was built according to the project of the architect A.I. fon Goguen in style of ancient Russian fortifications and represents a watchtower and walls with loopholes. Both wings of the main facade are decorated with mosaic pictures created by mozaicist N. E. Maslennikov and M. I. Zoshchenko (the father of the known Russian writer M. M. Zoshchenko) according to sketches of artists of A.N. Popov ("Suvorov's transition through the Alps") and N. A. Shabunin ("Suvorov's departure to a campaign of 1799"). There is A.V. Suvorov's princely coat of arms under a tent of the central tower topped with a two-headed eagle. The entrance to the museum is issued in the form of an Old Russian palace porch.
The biggest collection of tin soldiers belongs to the museum.
