“Worth a look, interesting history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

This is definitely worth a look and has a very interesting history. The house and contents are well preserved and displayed well. You will have to pay extra for a English speaking guide.

“Worth a short visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Gives some indication of life in Siberian exile in the early 19th century. Most exhibits are in Russian. The building itself was constructed by the daughter of one of the leading Decembrists; this is not clear from the exhibits.

“Really interesting link with the past.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

The furniture etc. that were real people's belongings from the past. Made me understand the impact the Decembrists' wives had on Irkutsk. And - an unexpected musical performance and champagne!
