    Yes Frank, I saw quite a lot of navigational instrumentsover there.  It 
    preserved some pretty old "tools" from 18 century Russian ships.  It was 
    years ago when I visited it, but the collection was enormous.  If you 
    consider that there were no more than 10 years in 1000 years of Russian 
    history without some,  from medium -to-full force, military conflict you can 
    imagine how many artifacts were and I hope are still available for 
    exposition.   Next to this Museum is one of the oldest, and really the oldest 
    Navy academy, Nahimov's Naval Academy  (Nahimov-famous Russan Admiral).  So I 
    wouldn't be surprised that Navy cadets are getting a lot of tours in that 
    museum.
    
    Another thing you may consider while visiting St. Petersburg (I lived there 
    for some time years ago) is Pulkov Observatory.  It is very famous , at least 
    in Europe, Old Observatory.  I'm not sure they permit organized tours, but 
    who knows... times changed.
    
    Please let me know if you want more outdated ;> info regarding Leningrad-St. Petersburg.
