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

That was probably the most emotional visit to a museum I've ever experienced. The woman guide told the story of the last days of Pushkin's life with so much quite passion as it's supposed to be when you're telling such a drama. I had tears in my eyes by the end. At first I wanted to hide them as I... More

We were fortunate and had a private guide so they wasn't any waiting. Also they give you an explanation of the palace and museum. In the summer, it is very crowded.

St. Petersburg has many rules for tourists and was not very friendly to visit. Let's say that this is not my favorite museum, lets resume with the picture that this is just a wanna be French museum. The organization for the entrance is horrible. We stood under the rain for an hour just to pass the main gates. The next... More

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.
