Mykhailivska Battery Museum


Sevastopol’s 19th-century Mykhailivska Battery was recently opened as a museum of mainly Crimean War memorabilia. Handed over by the Ministry of Defence to the National Museum of Military History of Ukraine, it was beautifully restored ‘in a hundred days’ thanks to the sponsorship of Ukrainian collector and member of the Royal Crimean War Research Society, Oleksiy Sheremetev. The massive iron stoves on the main floor were all painstakingly recast, and ship timbers specially ordered for the flooring. Outside, the pock-marked walls have rightly been left untouched. All in all, a heart-warming example of private-public collaboration.
