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."
