This museum is located at the intersection of Leninskaya and Sovetskaya Streets. This is a 20 minute walk from the center of town, and approx. 1.5 kilometers. It is probably best reached by walking, as although there are many buses that pass this location, there...More

We visited the museum on a half day tour from the cruse ship. Well worth a look around Petropavlosk and the museum gave you a good bit of history about how the town was established

Well worth a visit when in Petropavlovsk. It covers the history of this beautiful place . It's small but interesting. The only minus is that they do not speak English very well.
