Historical Museum. Moscow

Short Moscow layover? No time to tour the city? No worries, visit the Historical Museum on Red Square, for some fascinating Russian history .

The museum is housed inside a fancy red brick building from the 1870's, directly across St. Basil's Cathedral in Red Square (photo enclosed).

To enter, you must pay an entry fee (about 10 dollars cash). Pre-recorder English guides (highly recommended) are available for an extra fee.

The museum houses a wonderful collection of gold artifacts, ancient manuscripts, old coins, city paintings that show how Moscow grew, religious icons, etc. Plus, one can view the beautifully painted interior ceilings of this historical building.

Check with your concierge for current museum hours of operation before heading for a visit, since the official museum website is not very user friendly.
