Before the Arsenal pavilion of the Alexander park , there was a roccoco pavilion built by architect Rastrelli for empress Elisabeth 1st : the Monbijou pavilion :



This pavilion is dismantled in 1819 by scotish architect Adam Menelaws who built a new neo-gothic pavilion : Arsenal , completed by architect Konstantin Thon in 1834 :

Restoration of the Arsenal has been completed and an exhibition related to the history of weapons will open in the autumn of 2016. "In the basement are located: entrance area, cloakroom, technical and office space, a museum hall. On the ground floor - exhibition halls, a grand staircase, a spiral iron staircase in the north tower. As before, the exposition center will be an octagonal room on the second floor - Hall of Knights."

The spring in front of the Arsenal is the exact spot where Nicholas II sat and stood in the photos in Anna Vyrubova's Yale albums:
