The sound effects of the battle and the 115-meter canvas, for the completion of which the artist Roubaud sold his house, a collection of paintings, graphics, weapons and glass from the 19th century.

In the 19th century, on the site of the burned down "Hut of the Military Council", a wooden building was specially built, in which a museum was opened. Museum "Kutuzovskaya hut" was founded and maintained at the expense of the Society of Banner-bearers of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. Its exposition told about the events of the Patriotic War of 1812 and, first of all, about the Military Council in Fili, as well as about the Most Serene Prince M.I.Kutuzov. It was one of the first museums in the country dedicated to the 1812 Era. You may also checkout the article Museum of Wax Figures in Suzdal.

In 2006, the Museum of the Heroes of the Soviet Union and Russia was included in the Borodino Battle panorama museum as a department. In June 2001, the Museum of Heroes of the Soviet Union, Heroes of the Russian Federation and Full Cavaliers of the Order of Glory was established as a non-profit cultural institution. After several years of fruitful and demanded activities for the heroic-patriotic education of young people, the Moscow mayor's office decided to construct a new building for the Museum of Heroes and to transfer it to the management of the Borodino Battle Panorama Museum.
