A battleship of the Russian Navy put on eternal mooring. The museum exhibition illustrates the Aurora's participation in the Tsushima battle of the Russo-Japaneese War of 1904 - 1905, as well as its revolutionary activities in 1917: Aurora fired a blank round in the direction of the Winter Palace as a signal for the Bolsheviks to storm the Palace; and its participation in the World War II, 1941-45.
