Directions to Polytechnic Museum
The Polytechnical Museum in Moscow is one of the oldest museums in the world. The founders of the museum were the Society of Naturalists. Actively participating in organizing the construction of the Moscow University were also professor Shchurovsky GE and Bogdanov, AP.
Opened in 1872 in a temporary building on Prechistenka, five years later the central part of the Polytechnical Museum was completed by the architect Monighetti. Then the southern wing was worked on by architects Shokhin and Weber, and in 1896 work was completed on the right wing before being completed on the North Building in 1907. In all, the construction of the Polytechnic Museum in Moscow lasted nearly thirty years.
On each floor of the four buildings are exhibits from the various branches of engineering and science. Subjects of the first floor are about transport. The second floor is dedicated to aircraft, communications, electronics, meteorology, aviation, metallurgy, chemistry and mining.
