Overview

This is an unusual subject for a museum - think about how you would go about lighting a major capital city through the ages and you'll get the general idea. You'll find the history of Moscow's street lighting from 1730 to the present day, from wooden torches through to gas lamps and lanterns to modern-day lampposts. There are plenty of photographs and drawings, including some interesting depictions of Moscow being illuminated in a glittering celebration of victory at the end of WWII.
