The exposition starts on the first floor, which is dedicated to primitive society, Old Rus’, feudal fragmentation, fight against foreign invaders, the unification of Russia, its cultural traditions, and the mastering of Siberia. The second floor displays Russia from the era of Peter I: politics, economy, and culture of the Russian Empire.
