The museum is managed by the Russian Ministry of Defence.


The museum is located on the southern shore of Petrogradskiy Island, directly across the Kronverkskiy Strait from the Peter and Paul Fortress. The nearest metro station is Gorkovskaya, which is approximately ten minutes by foot along the Kronverkskaya Embankment and Kamennoostrovskiy Prospekt.
