The Moscow Kremlin is considered to be a symbol of the Russian statehood.

 

The Moscow Kremlin State Historical and Cultural Museum and Heritage Site incorporates the Armoury Chamber and the architectural ensemble of the Cathedral Square, consisting of the Assumption, Archangel and Annunciation cathedrals, the Church of Laying Our Lady’s Holy Robe, the Patriarch’s Palace with the Twelve Apostles’ Church and the ‘Ivan the Great’ Bell Tower complex, as well as the exhibition halls in the Assumption Belfry and in the One-Pillar Chamber of the Patriarch’s Palace.

 

The history of organizing and developing the museum institution in the Moscow Kremlin covers almost three hundred years and involves periods of prosperity and rapid development of museum and research activities, periods of heroic struggle for saving national treasure as well as periods of stagnation, followed by revival.

Apart from that many Russian museums, archives and libraries are actively involved in this project.

 

The aim of the exhibition is to demonstrate the significance and the revolutionary character of Peter the Great’s reforms concerning patronage of arts and science.
