1. The Central Hall

The Central Hall of the museum is impressively spacious, simple and solemn. The dominant part of the hall is the stained-glass window, which depicts Suvorov in a grand pose in the style of the ceremonial portraits of the 18th century. In front of the stained-glass window, framed by guns, are the combat awards and the personal weapon of the commander. In the niches behind the central showcase is the reconstruction of one of the rooms of the house in the village of Konchansky, where Suvorov served his exile, a composition of the items from Glaris house, and Suvorov’s room in the St. Joseph Monastery in the Mutten Valley, where Suvorov stayed during the Swiss campaign. The other niches and showcases of the hall display the trophies of the Russian army, and the walls are decorated with the Russian and Turkish.

The Large Left Hall of the museum is dedicated to the life and work of Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorov. The exposition depicts his service during the four reigns, relations with contemporaries, participation in the Seven Years’ War, the Russo-Turkish and Polish wars, and the Italian-Swiss campaign. One of the 39 guns taken as trophies after the battle of the Italian city of Novi in 1799, the French cannon of the Gribovala system, stands in the center of the hall.

The Small Left Hall has a section devoted to the family and the immediate descendants of the commander. The exposition displays portraits and personal belongings of his wife Varvara Ivanovna Suvorova (whose birth name was Princess Prozorovskaya), his daughter Natalia Suvorova (“Suvorochka”, whose name after marriage was Countess Zubova), his son Arkady Aleksandrovich Suvorov, and his grandchildren Konstantin Arkadyevich Suvorov and Alexander Arkadyevich Suvorov.

The Large Right Hall describes the martial art of Suvorov. The exposition reveals the innovative aspects of his commandment and shows the combat habits of the great commander in contrasts with the contemporary military art. Aside from traditional exhibits, such as weapons, uniforms, and equipment of the Russian army during the time of Suvorov, a number of mock-ups of battles made up of tin soldiers are displayed in this hall.

The Small Right Hall holds temporary exhibitions.
