The Martial Chamber , World War 1 Museum
« on: February 20, 2014, 11:14:59 AM »
I Post this topic here because the Martial Chamber is situated in the Alexander Park , just a short walk from the Alexander Palace and the Feodorovsky Cathedral .

The Martial Chamber ( Ratnaya Palata ) have been restored like Museum of the Great War , and the official opening is scheduled for August 1 , 2014 , the day marking the 100th anniversary of the First World War .

Paul Gilbert wrote on his blog  Royal Russia  :

 " Saint-Petersburg restorers have completed work on the Marshall Chamber , built more than 100 years ago for the exposition of Russia’s military history .
The Tsarskoye Selo State Museum Preserve will now initiate the preparatory work for the opening of Russia's only museum of the First World War later this year . The historic building was built specifically for the military collection assembled by the philanthropist widow Elena Tretyakova . In 1911 she presented to Emperor Nicholas II , a valuable collection of artefacts illustrating the military history of Russia since ancient times .

The Emperor decided to construct a building at Tsarskoye Selo to house the collection . However , the museum was short-lived, and closed shortly after the Revolution . And now, a century later the Marshall Chamber will be restored to its original function , as a museum dedicated to Russia’s military history , although its new concept will focus specifically on Russia’s role in World War One .

The building itself , established in the Neo-Russian style, is well preserved . The original frescoes and painting have miraculously survived in the interiors . "


You can watch the russian television report here on Youtube , with pictures of the magnificent interiors of these buildings : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhkgszr5JZk

I think that the next World War will happen in the Middle East maybe around Israel or somewhere like that.
