The Military Historical Museum in Orel (Военно-исторический музей в Орле)

The Military Historical Museum in Orel was opened in 1983 in a historical mansion that used to belong to a merchant Chikin. The whole history of the military glory of the Orel region is reflected in the museum collection from ancient times to the present time.

The museum collection presents samples of medieval weapons and armors, portraits of soldiers and officers of different periods, photographs of war participants and their letters from XIX-XX centuries and a collection of small and steel arms.

There are two dioramas in the museum. One of them expresses the Russian Civil War events in 1919, and another one expresses World War II events that happened on the territory of Orel area in 1943.
