The Central Naval Museum named after Emperor Peter the Great passed the act of transferring to the museum for eternal storage of items from the family collection of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, Admiral of the Fleet Felix Gromov. The ceremony was attended by the director of the Central Military Museum Ruslan Nekhay, the daughter of Admiral Vlada Feliksovna, his grandson Aliks and the responsible custodians of the museum’s funds, which will henceforth store the donated items.

The museum’s funds were replenished with the flag of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, the dress uniform of the Admiral of the Fleet, his dagger and spyglass, a ship’s bell and a model of a ship, and other rarities from the family archive.

The director of the TsVMM named after Emperor Peter the Great, expressing deep gratitude to the donors, said that one of the main tasks of the museum is not only to preserve the history of the Navy, but to reflect the activities of its most prominent representatives, who, no doubt, are the commanders-in-chief of the Navy. The role of each of them in the development of the fleet should be presented in the permanent exhibition of the museum.

“The items donated to the museum – this pantheon of glory of Russian sailors, will forever preserve the memory of Admiral of the Fleet Felix Gromov for posterity, just as things that belonged to Emperor Peter the Great and many great naval commanders of our Fatherland are safely preserved to this day,” said Ruslan Nekhay.

The ceremony of handing over objects to the museum ended the tour of the depositories of the Central Naval Museum named after Emperor Peter the Great
