The Kalashnikov Museum in Izhevsk, Russia

Despite the fact that the museum is named after Kalashnikov, the museum presents the exhibition not only of production "from the pen of Mikhail Timofeyevich - it contains all the small arms that go into the light of Izhevsk, having not a lot of but a few 200-year history of the armory. Izhmash has its own museum too, thats why two of the same museum with the same name is definitely paying the confusion.

Kalashnikov is commonly used to refer to a type of rifle, but also has other meanings, AK-47, or another rifle in that series. Design work on the AK-47 began in the last year of World War II (1945). After the war in 1946, the AK-46 was presented for official military trials. In 1947 the fixed-stock version was introduced into service with select units of the Soviet Army. An early development of the design was the AKS-47 (S—Skladnoy or "folding"), which was equipped with an underfolding metal shoulder stock. In 1949, the AK-47 was officially accepted by the Soviet Armed Forces and used by the majority of the member states of the Warsaw Pact. [Wikipedia]
