Underground Museum

A long time ago on the place of the museum was located the very first street in Moscow – Velikaya. Now in the underground space adjacent to the Moskvoretskaya embankment, a modern interactive archaeological museum has been created.
Here you can take a picture with an archer of the 17th century, try on a helmet and bracers of a local nobleman, hold a heavy chain mail in your hands.
With the help of modern media technologies, visitors can master the technique of gun loading, learn how to repel enemy’s attack, pick a dress for Tsar's Archer, solve ancient puzzles, find a treasure and much more.

In the display windows of the museum there are interactive projections of the 16-17 centuries heroes. Animated characters will tell about all the museum exhibits and reveal their peculiarities.
The archaeological museum is built around the white-stone foundation of Kitaygorodskaya wall. This outstanding monument of fortification art was created in 1535-1538. The fragment was discovered during archaeological works before the construction of Zaryadye Park.

The museum exhibits authentic items of 15-17 centuries: weapons, stone and cast-iron cannon balls. The exposition includes household items of ordinary citizens, found during the excavations of Zaryadye district: shoes, crockery, accessories, and even treasures hidden here at different times by residents of Kitay-Gorod. Underground Museum is located in the underpass from the park to Moskvoretskaya embankment. Visitors with special needs can use the elevator.
