About 50-60 minutes from St. Petersburg, the area is worth visiting. The museum is over the top as were most of the venues you will see in the area. The Amber room is quite spectacular. The village around the museum is charming and worth walking through .

I only knew half of Pushkin's story, and this museum - in fact, his last apartment where he actually dies - tells his story. The audio guide is well done, a bit on the dramatic side, but very touching and informative. Made me want to look up the whole story on wikipedia afterwards.

We had just seen Catherines palace, and then we went to Pushkin, which was another palace that was bombed in the war, but was told was completely restored. I think it is hard for Pushkin to play second chair to Catherines, but it was a very nice place to visit. Im a history buff and really was taken by all... More

Wonderful wonderful little museum. If you know Puskin's work and his story, then you will find this place fascinating.... a real insight into his life (even though he and his family stayed for such a short time here on the Moika). The collection is rich and the audio tour very clearly presented. A little dexterity might be needed to stay... More

This little museum is quite interesting -- but know before you go that Pushkin spent just a year living here before he was killed and brought back to this apartment -- so it's not a deep look at or exploration of his life. The audioguide will take you through each room, focusing on what led up to his dramatic duel... More

This museum seemed to cater more for Russian locals although an audio guide was available we found it a little confusing to negotiate the rooms as there were group tours also in the small space. However, the story of Pushkin's death and final hours haunts the place and certainly had an impact.

I have been here with a russian private guide, so the visit has been very interesting. He explained everything about this place. The day was very windy, so remember to take a scarf because it is outside town and there is a long way to walk. Unforgettable, you can't miss this place.

Warning! This house-museum is NOT easy to find - there is no signage at the building's entrance nor is it indicated that one must go through the basement to get to the museum's reception and visitor's area! But once through the hassle, one is rewarded at the rendering of the great poet's last days especially if one knows a bit... More
