Museum of Contemporary History of Russia

The State Central Museum of the Contemporary History of Russia is strategically placed at the most vibrant area of Moscow centre as Tverskaya Street is a real entrance to the heart of the city. The building is a listed monument of academic classicism (18th century), the main meeting point of open-minded intellectuals and well-known "English Club" before the revolution of 1917 started. In 1924 the residence was renowned as the "Revolution museum" which in turn became Museum of the Contemporary History not so long ago. Museum collections maintain over one million items reflecting all history points of Russia since 19th century. USSR leaders private collections certainly catch all eyes: here’s a carved pipe "Stalin and Truman playing chess", a palace style tusk presented by Vietnamese communist party to the participants of the 20th USSR Communist Party Congress, a dressing-table set (a gift for Stalin from Italia) and a lot of other unique items. Kids will appreciate the mix of genuine pieces and modern technologies.

    “What to see in Moscow? There are many options. As for us, we went to Pokrovsky Sobor straight after buying CityPass. According to the guidebooks, it is one of the best places to visit in Moscow. We saw Pokrovsky Cathedral on many postcards and knew that it was a religious symbol of Moscow, that’s why it was our first choice. And only then we went to the Kremlin. Being so individual the exterior and interior of St. Basil’s Cathedral are impressive. It’s a true eye candy! We really liked the picturesque view of the Red Square and the Moskva River from the cathedral viewpoint. By the way, using the pass we skipped the line which was great! The line was huge during the FIFA World Cup. Apparently, it is not so easy to get the tickets to St. Basil's Cathedral during the high season. With Moscow СityPass you just need to show it to security guards and they will let you go to the ticket office to validate the pass. Inside the church you can also get an audio guide. Highly recommended!”
