Museum info

About the museum

The history of our museum dates back to September 11, 1912, when the "Borodino" panorama by Franz Roubaud opened in Moscow. In 1962 it was rehoused in a new building on Kutuzovsky Prospect. The names of 50 heroes who brought Russia glory in the war of 1812 are engraved on the ring of white stone in the central part of the complex. The museum building is decorated with panel mosaics depicting “The citizens in arms and the fire of Moscow” and “The victory of the Russian army and the expulsion of Napoleon”. Some 68 barrels of captured artillery pieces seized by the Russian army during the pursuit of Napoleon’s retreating troops are set along the perimeter of the building. Currently on display at the museum together with the Borodino Panorama is a vast collection of battle-scene artworks, pieces of decorative and applied art, weapons, military uniforms, munitions and everyday objects of battlefield life of the Russian and French armies in 1812.
