“A great memory to a great poet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

This was not something I have planned to visit initially but I am very glad I did. This apartment is a great memory to the most respected and loved Russian poet, the lady who did our excursion (only available in Russian) was fantastic, and really made you re-live last months of Pushkin's life. There are a number of original items that are still kept in the apartment and it was amazing walking through a museum with so much history.

“Worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

The last residence of one of the greatest forefathers of modern russian language. Polite and knowledgeable staff. Could be a little more creatively set up rather than just an assuming reproduction of where Pushkin lived, especially given the significance of the author.

“a passionate man”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Who does not know Pushkin should enter in this museum in order to understand him and to become his fan.
Passion, tragedy, love, life and death, this is Pushkin.
Please do not miss the audioguide, it's worth.

“Very well presented”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

It is a moving experience to visit the flat of this remarkable man, so tragically killed at such an early age. There is an audio guide in English (and other languages) which is very informative, and the rooms (including the one in which he died and the one in which his body laid in state) are very well preserved and full of memorabilia.
