An amazing museum that tells such a story of triumph out of tragedy. This museum is a must visit if your into your history. Not a lot in English but the audio guide is excellent.

For me this museum was a very fascinating experience, considering that I knew practically nothing of the history of the Leningrad blockade. There is not much written explanation in English, so be sure that you rent the audio-guide, which is very informative and detailed. I...More

While the exhibit is in Russian, it is still easy to see the story of what the Russians when through during the siege of Leningrad (now St. Petersburg). What a sad story and one not to be forgotten.

Although the building is small there is an awful lot of information so you will need a couple of hours at least. Well worth visit

Well worth a visit. A sobering reminder of a dreadful piece of history. English information is good however, do get an audio tour. They are excellent.

Hello! We will be in St Petersburg between 4 June and 10 June next year and are very keen to visit this museum on one of those days. I have found out the opening hours etc, but it seems this museum closes down for two or three months every year. Is that so? And if yes, does the annual closure by any chance coincide with our visit? I will be very grateful for your Harlow and advice. Thank you! Anjan Basu// Bangalore, India
