The Museum of Moscow Streltsy (archer warriors) “Streletsky Chambers” is a museum of the military history of the Russian Military Historical Society, located in Moscow, in the building of the Titov Chambers, an architectural monument of the 17th-18th centuries.
The rightful owners of the museum are archers, to whom the main expositions are dedicated – “Moscow archers” and “Serving people of the Moscow state.”
The museum introduces the history of the first regular army of Rus’ – the Streltsy – and its rich and complex history. In the halls, you can see authentic objects and documents, historical reconstructions, works of art, and materials from archival funds.
