Photo and description
The Military History Museum of the Pacific Fleet in Vladivostok is the key museum of the city, whose history is directly related to the history of the fleet. The opening of the Pacific Fleet Museum took place in 1950. Initially, it was housed in a Lutheran church building. Currently, the museum's expositions are located in an old building on the main street of the city, which is a historical and architectural monument. It was built in 1903 to house the officers of the Siberian naval crew. The author of this project was the famous architect I. Seestrandt.
The building, made in the tradition of "strict" classicism, is part of a single architectural ensemble of the so-called officers' wings on Svetlanskaya Street. The facade of the museum building has a symmetrical three-part composition and a number of decorative elements: friezes, window frames, figured attics and triangular pediments. 1980-1990 the building housed various institutions of the Pacific Fleet. In 1997, it was handed over to the Military History Museum of the Pacific Fleet.
Today, in the eleven halls of the museum, there are over 40 thousand amazing exhibits that tell visitors about the history of the Pacific Fleet from the time of Peter I to the present day. Among the valuable artifacts in the museum you can see weapons, old awards, things of Russian sailors. The museum also presents: medical instruments from the period of the Russian-Japanese war, sea watercolors, an original collection of ship models, etc.
