“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

I didn't know anything about Pushkin before, but this museum taold me lots. Only 9 rooms and with a very informative audio guide, it focusses on his duel and death - sounds gruesome, but is truly fascinating. The cafe must also be the cheapest in SPB!!

“Definitely worth a side trip to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

Plenty crammed in here although his demise in a duel doesn't get a mention! Fantastic value at RUB 100 but will be better after the planned renovations are complete. An English speaking audio would have been useful. Devotees of Pushkin will love it nevertheless.

“Visiting Pushkins Apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2007

For me, a lover of Pushkins work it was a wonderful experience to stand in his St Petersburg Apartment and see his notes and manuscripts. To stand in his library ad see his death mask and the pistols from his duel, the shirt he wore at the time and the couch he died on has inspired me (as a poet myself) to write a poem about my visit.
The Apartment is quite large and has some his favourite furniture and ornaments in it. There are also portraits including one of his beautiful wife.
