“Helps to read up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Very interesting museum. Extremely well presented and obviously cherished by the staff. We were there on 29th Sept. a Sunday no one else was there. A few really funky effects like shadows of people going up the stairs. Mostly russian information with a few English ones. It helps to so some pre reading to get the best out of this spot.

“Excellent museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you like history, and especially enjoy hearing about how people lived, this is a great museum. It isn't too large, so it is easy to do in a few hours.

Cozy house displaying the stuff of wives of the Decembrists. English descriptions are available and staff there will show you around too.

“Beautiful very old house used by Russian noble family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

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.

“Very pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

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
