I fell in love with her work when I first read her poems in translation. And then I managed to even see where this brilliant woman lived. I liked that there was an audio guide in the museum. I advise you to visit.

Having just started to read Akhmatova's poems and history, I was completely overwhelmed by this lovely little museum. It is very apparent, and rightfully so, that Akhmatova is very much loved by Russians. The museum focusses on a Russian public, but tries to cater to...More

I have an interest in Russian literature and history so this was a must and did not dissapoint. You get a real feel for living in the time of Stalisfield Russia and the siege of Leningrad. It was a moving experience.

Only quickly skimmed Anna's Wikipedia page before visiting her apartment, but despite my limited knowledge basis, absolutely loved the experience!

Very interesting museum. More on Stalinism than on Akhmatova's poetry, which makes it worthwhile even for those who are not familiar with her writings. Don't forget to get the audio guide!
