The Iron Age in archeology is called the period of human history following the Bronze Age, which is marked by the development of the method of obtaining iron, the beginning of the manufacture of products from it and their widespread distribution. This became one of the most important achievements of mankind, which caused a rapid growth of the productive forces. The use of iron made it possible to improve tools, types of offensive weapons and protective equipment. It was the Iron Age with its technical achievements and spiritual discoveries that laid a solid foundation for modern European culture.
The exposition is organized according to chronological and geographical principles and includes several thematic sections corresponding to archaeological cultures that have developed over a wide area from the Atlantic Ocean in the west to the Ural Mountains in the east.
The exhibition features more than 1,300 artifacts from the archaeological collections of the State Historical Museum, the State Hermitage, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Prehistory and Ancient History (State Museums of Berlin). The exhibition is unique in the breadth of the material presented on it: the Iron Age in Italy, Hallstatt culture, the antiquities of the Celtic culture, the famous treasures of the Scythian steppe mounds, ancient monuments, famous treasures, antiquities of the Koban culture of the North Caucasus and the cultures of the forest belt of Eastern Europe.

The exposition includes a large number of exhibits related to the so-called displaced values, exported to the territory of the USSR in 1945 as trophy art. For the first time in history, the exposition will unite not only materials from the Iron Age of Western and Eastern Europe, but archaeological complexes and monuments that were separated almost 80 years ago.
