I use the term 'experience' here as every bit of the museum, from the barely marked entrance (don't trust sat nav go by address) to the polite but forceful women who watch you vigilantly while you thumb your translated booklet, is just that, an experience.
Housed on the fifth floor of a soviet-era apartment block the museum is a collection of Kirov's and other families items and provides a real glimpse into their life. Knowing relatively little about the revolutionary beforehand I can now say having visited that I still know practically nothing of his achievements nor demise. It's not that the exhibits aren't full of information it's just all rather odd stuff, like what birds he shot! Then again that sort of wraps the whole place up, wonderful in its own way but decidedly random!!
Worth a visit, very odd but for 200 rub its worth it!
