It can be hard to see the highlights of Moscow in a day or two, but this hop-on hop-off City Sightseeing open-top bus tour makes it easy and convenient. Take in views of the city while listening to recorded commentary on the bus. Hop off at any of the stops, including Red Square, the Big Stone Bridge, and Pushkin Fine Arts Museum. Rejoin the bus when you’re ready. Upgrade to include a boat tour of Moscow.

This place is easily accessible from Red Square - just a couple of minutes walk. It provides an insight into how the wealthy Muscovites lived hundreds of years ago. Each small room is well set out and the are information leaflets in both Russian and English. Please note, there are some very steep and narrow flights of stairs to negotiate and some of the doorways and archways cannot be over five feet high.

The Chambers of the Romanov Boyars is at 10 Varvarka Street in Park Zaryad'ye. It is a short walk from Red Square. It only takes about a hour for a visit. here is printed information in English. This small but interesting museum is devoted to the lives of the Romanov family. Before Mikhail Romanov was elected a new tsar, his family had been well-known and powerful Moscovian boyars (nobles). The house was built by Nikita Romanov, whose grandson Mikhail Fyodorovich later became the first tsar of the 300-year Romanov dynasty. After Mikhail Fyodorovich was chosen a new Russian tsar, the Romanovs moved to the Moscow Kremlin. Exhibits show the house as it might have been when the Romanovs lived here in the 16th century.

The museum is not big, but I think it's still worth visiting. Great historical value as it's the only example of a boyar house of XV-XVI centuries - a glance into life of the tsar period of Russia, before the Soviet and even the imperial times. The interior has been nicely restored, you'll find a description in Russian and English in every room, which might be enough if you want to just look around. If I remember correctly, English descriptions were not under every item, but I'd say the structure of the house is a bit more important.
