Very nicely done museum having to do with the 1709 defeat of the Swedish King Charles XII by the forces of Peter I (otherwise known as Peter the Great). Seeing the coat worn by Peter I was worth coming here, such a fashionista.

This museum is a short drive out from the city center, and located near a few monuments and a church. The museum has some interesting exhibits and artefacts and focuses mostly on the battle with the Swedish empire. Very lovely and worth the drive.
