On October 22, the Museum of Moscow and its branches - the Museum of Archeology of Moscow and the Museum of History of Lefortovo - will open the exhibition "And other cultural values". The project will present new finds from the 2020 field season, provided by the capital’s archaeological organizations, as well as items from the archaeological funds of the Museum of Moscow. Among them, you can see unique leather items - various shoes and items of equipment of soldiers of the 16th century, which have survived to this day.
The exhibition is built on the principle of capsule blocks integrated into the exhibition space of the Museum of Moscow and its branches. The largest block will appear in the archaeological exposition of the Museum of Moscow "History of Moscow for Children and Adults" on Zubovsky Boulevard. It consists of several themed showcases, in which you can see porcelain figurines of the 19th century, a leather saadak (quiver) for arrows, dating from the second half of the 17th century.
The block at the Museum of Archeology of Moscow deals with the fascinating theme of Moscow treasures. The treasure of 10 coins hidden in a chess piece found on Prechistenka is the earliest treasure that visitors can see in the museum. Another treasure, presented at the exhibition, consists of banknotes from the Civil War and was hidden by the owner in case the old order returned.
Within the framework of the exhibition, the Lefortovo History Museum will present fragments of the famous Annenhof "Kashkada". One of the first significant creations of the young Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli was the Annenhof complex in Lefortovo, which included a palace and a garden and park ensemble. A distinctive feature of the "Summer Annenhof" is the so-called "Kashkada" - a 380-meter wall decorated with niches with sculptures, flowerpots and columns.
