In general, nothing to see inside. Good place for Russian history lovers. Beautiful area, trees, birds. Too much snow in front of the house. Impossible to park motorcycles.

I visited on 30 Oct - hardly another visitor there but the guides made me feel very welcome and although they spoke no English were willing to help as best they could - as someone interested in The Decembrists and in particular Maria Volkonskaya it was a great little visit

You have to visit it, if you are already in Irkutsk. The decabrists had such a big influence on the town and this museum gives a nice overview about the life of one of their leaders. The ladies in the museum are very nice and helpful, you need to know Russian in order to communicate with them. The information is also available in English (booklets in each room).

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.
