“Elegant house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Pushkin's house museum is very homely and elegant. They have sheets in English so you can get the full understanding of Pushkins life!
The furniture was very elegant and the wooden floor beautiful.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

Pushkin stayed here for only a few months after his marriage, and it shows. Limited on Pushkin artefacts, the museum struggles to find a purpose. There is an A4 sheet in English in every room, but it doesn't tell you much. If you want to find out about Pushkin, this museum will not help you. Needs a permit for photos, the staff don't speak English but seem very pleasant.

“Not our kids TOP 10 attraction in Moscow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

This is quite basic old house where is mainly posters and some small decoration items. Does not even look home without furniture. Most interesting part for me was that in every room is different kind of piece of hand craft work in wood floors. If you are thinking about what kind of floor might be best for your home visit here for ideas.

If I could read Russian and be there without kids it would be much better experience.
