If one knows who the Pushkin is and loves his writing, it is a must visit place It would not be as attractive to an outsider of Russian poetry with no idea who Pushkin is

Before I visited, I thought it would be something dry/boring with just displays of stuff Pushkin has used...what more can you expect from a museum for a famous historical figure? But actually it was really nice and beyond my expectation - I rented a audio guide which was so useful - it ran me through the rooms one by one,... More

This was Pushkin's apartment at the time of his death. The description of the events leading up to the fatal duel are clearly described in relation to the contents of the museum. There is aver moving description of his final moments in the library. It is quite moving.

One of my favorite writers. Nice house, great to see, many (authentic) documents. However, the house is not very special.

The place takes the visitor to the life of early 19th century.Very atmospheric and well organised.The only problem is that nearly no member of the staff talks english.

For literature fans, this is a must. We were told that for non-Russian speaking visitors a self-guided tour in English is a must but the cost was so low (around $5) and the information provided was well worth it. We felt we were there with Pushkin and his family. Truly great!

If literature is your interest then this is the place to go. Seeing so much about his life and where he roamed. Also- Do not miss the Pushkin metro station- a real beauty that captures so much.

This is the house were Pushkin spent his final years and where he died after the famous duel. This is a place of pilgrimage for all Russians as Pushkin is a God like figure to them and essential to their cultural. I had the inmense pleasure of recently performing Onegin in this museum. It was a wonderful experience.

Gogol said Pushkin embodied the Russian soul and in many ways that is still true. Most of the visitors to the Pushkin Museum are native Russians paying their respects. As Russian speaking foreigners we snuck in on a Russian tour and it was incredible the enthusiasm and fervor for Pushkin. The tour guide was the best we had anywhere on... More
