Lovely house with a wealth of information about the Decembrist's and their revolt of 26th December 1825. Good value at 200 roubles. Closed Monday's (the sister museum Trubetskoy nearby on Dzerzhinskogo Street is closed Tues/Wed).

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.

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.

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!
