- Here you will find themed exhibitions dealing with the Russian Empire such as the takeover by the Bolsheviks, the Civil War (the Reds versus the Whites), the emergence of Stalinism and the history of the Soviet Union from its creation in 1922 to its dissolution in 1991. There is also a lot of hardware on display: period small arms, a World War I armoured car, a 6-inch artillery gun used by Bolshevik insurgents to shell the Kremlin and pieces of Moscow's barricades from 1991. A separate exhibition features gifts which have been presented to Soviet leaders from Stalin to Gorbachev.
