Take an incredible ride through the history of Russia in the Art Nouveau Mansion full of immersive technologies (3 hours)

The State Museum of the Political History of Russia is the successor to the Revolution Museum. It is housed in two historic buildings of the modern era: the mansions of the ballerina Matilda​ Kshesinskaya, and baron Brandt. The main expositions are so large that it is better to split the visit into two days. And get ready to learn a lot! At the same time the Museum is full of immersive technologies: touch screens, projections, objects, sounds, voices, and the only thing missing is smell. If you pick up the phone, you will hear Stalin's voice, and if you stand up in the middle of the display with windows, you will hear and see Tolstoy. The exposition ‘Matilda Kshesinskaya: Fouettes of Fate’ tells the story of the mistress of the mansion. It is a romantic and, now, such a scandalous story of one famous woman and Russian history that was so cruel to her.

At the beginning of the 1990's, the museum was renamed the Museum of Political History, and the displays were radically reworked to reveal much of the secret history of the Soviet Union, with a new ethos aimed at dispassionately telling the truth about even the most recent history. The museum's collection embraces a broad time spectrum, from the reign of Catherine the Great (the second half of the 18th century) to the political climate in contemporary Russia. Among nearly 500,000 exhibits on display here, there is a rich collection of original documents including a signed decree from Napoleon and the correspondence of Mikhail Gorbachev.

Contemporary history is also charted with such artifacts as the video camera used by Mikhail Gorbachev to record his messages to the nation during the August Putsch of 1991 and a piece of the Berlin Wall, among many other unique exhibits.
