  Polytechnical Museum
by Canadienne

Favorite thing: A stunning example of Russian Revivalist architecture, the Polytechnical Museum was built in 1877.

Although the museum is open (displays on science and technology), we didn't enter. We were far more interested in admiring the exterior decoration.

Fondest memory: The variety of architecture in Moscow ~ old and new ~ was fascinating. Add good weather and good walking shoes to this. . .suddenly you have the prime ingredients of my ideal vacation (and my mom's, too).

Please see my Architectural Treasures travelogue, for some photos of buildings (other than the ones in the tips) that caught our attention.
