The Museum of Moscow was founded in 1896 and in 2008 it became the main museum of the Museum of Moscow Museum Association, which incorporates five other museums in the city. In 2011 the main department of the museum moved to its present day location in three large buildings which were formerly used as an arsenal. Here there is a permanent display on the history of Moscow from prehistoric times right up to the modern day. Also included are lots of interesting old photographs of the capital. The other two buildings hold temporary exhibitions which often include photo exhibitions and displays of modern art. There is free admission to the museum on the third Sunday of the month.
