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.

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
