The Military­-Historical Museum of Artillery

“His majesty, by his own decree in the year 1703, ordered this mortar not to be recast.” This inscription is carved into the bronze mortar that was cast in 1605 by master Andrei Chokhov and cannon moulder Pronia Fedorov. The cannon was to become the first exhibit in one of the richest collections devoted to war history and is now kept in the Military­-Historical Museum of Artillery, Engineer and Signal Corps.

Originally this had been a small wooden structure that was later rebuilt with brick. Both Russian and captured guns and cannons that were considered to have historical value were sent to this arsenal "for remembrance and future glory." The first keeper of the Arsenal was Major of Artillery S. L. Bukhvostov, the legendary "first Russian soldier" in the poteshny regiment of boy­-soldiers under Peter I who was enlisted in the Preobrazhensky Regiment in 1687.
