Very good small museum that provided a good insight into the life of Anna Akhmatova. The domestic setting of the apartment provided an extra insight. The guides - though not speaking English - aimed to help us with handouts. The museum is a bit hard...More

In the very heart of the city and takes some finding, but well worth the search. A history filled museum, very thoughtfully laid out and full of atmosphere. A very special place, and if you know her poems, this is THE spot to visit.

This is where Anna Akhmatova lived in a communal apartment during the Soviet years. It is very moving to see the circumstances in which she wrote "Requiem."

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
