AK-47 Museum | Kalashnikov Museum in Izhevsk

AK-47, the notorious assault rifle, has a museum in its honor - the Kalashnikov Museum also called the AK-47 museum. The museum was opened on November 4, 2004, in Izhevsk, a city in the Ural Mountains of Russia. The museum chronicles the biography of General Kalashnikov – the creator of the rifle - as well as documents the invention of the AK-47. The museum attracts some 10,000 visitors each month.

The Kalashnikov Museum museum serves as Russia's monument to this world-renowned infantry weapon. It presents the guns and their history with civic pride and a revived sense of national confidence. The exhibitions, ranging from static displays of weapons to plasma-screen video presentations showing the guns' use in recent decades, reflect a laborer's affection for what has long flowed from nearby foundries and assembly lines. Much of the material is also viewed through the life of Gen. Mikhail T. Kalashnikov, the man credited with designing the weapon in secret trials in 1947, and who still lives a few blocks away.

Nadezhda Vechtomova, the museum director stated in an interview that the purpose of the museum is to honor the ingenuity of the inventor and the hard work of the employees and to "separate the weapon as a weapon of murder from the people who are producing it and to tell its history in our country."
