In the very middle of Tverskaya st. there is an Empire-style mansion with white colonnade.
Used as a residence of Moscow English Club, it is now the Museum of Contemporary Russian History. Everything that influenced Russian political development over the last 150 years, all sorts of unique items including photos, posters, books, and documents are gathered here.
All these exhibits not only help to analyse recent historical events but give some kind of nostalgic feeling, because all of them are remembered by every Russian. Everything that was a part of our everyday life has now become a history.
As we all know, Moscow is full of world-famous sites and attractions. Visiting Kremlin will help to understand the past of Russia, visiting the Museum of Contemporary Russian History is essential to understand the present.
