We had a guide to take us around the palace and grounds she knew lots of information so we got a real taste of how it has been restored since it was looted in WW2. Its a beautiful palace inside and out.

SPB Tours included this stop with many other sites on the (3) day package. The tour guide, provided by SPB Tours made this Museum come alive. Through her visual story telling the statutes positioned in the museum felt real.

Does not take very long to go through. Set up sort of like a wax museum and the story was very interesting.Basement and cellar were the most fun. I liked it!

The museum is in the apartment where Pushkin lived at the end of his live. He was mortally wounded in a duel and died in the apartment. An audio guide is recommended, and photographs aren't permitted. They do an excellent job of providing the history surrounding this important Russian poet. It takes about an hour to tour the exhibits.

This apartment has a few rooms with original Pushkin furniture and other items.Main theme is Pushkin's death after the duel.Numbers admitted limited so would be worth pre-booking at busy times.Rather pricey admission charge considering size of property.

The most famous icon in the world by most scholars is Rublev's Old Testament Trinity. This is only one of the outstanding icons and magnificent pieces of art that can be found in one of the most famous museums in the world.

This is the house of the great Russian Poet Alexander Pushkun. It is very simple and onscure. This was pointed out the the doorman of my Hotel Kempinski. Behind the door is an open space. and You can visit the museum where there is his memorabilia up stairs.

You can visit the museum and the house. it's nice view of the history and I think it's worth visiting. The tour is going fast and you only allow to make photo's after she finish talk, but then you have no change, so just make photo's during tour. It will take you about 3 hours total to visit both.

This is definitely one for the Pushkin fans I think. Not having read any I felt a bit of a fraud wandering around but was hoping to get a feel for the era. It was a bit intense really and a bit tricky to find once inside the courtyard. It's downstairs FYI... Anyway, you are obliged to have the audio... More

The museum is on the first floor where there's a separate exhibition of his works and you can see the authentically furnished appartment.
