The house where Alexander Pushkin spent three years in exile from Russia, Pushkin Museum offers a glimpse into the life of this literary giant. Born into Russian nobility and exiled for his political beliefs, Pushkin wrote his famous poem "The Prisoner of the Caucasus" in this house. Containing writings and drawings by the great poet, the museum spreads across the original cottage and a nearby house. Exhibits include books and paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries, a sculpted bust of Pushkin, and period furnishings. Make sure you have good directions, as the museum is tucked away and can be hard to find. Guides will give you a tour in English or Russian.

  • A small museum, so we decided to take guided tours. Worth it, if memory serves me 100 lei. 10 Lei sign. The excursion takes about an hour. Everything as in the classroom. Tell us not only about the period of Pushkin's life in Chisinau, but also in General about his fate. Many facts of the school program. In General, if you have a lot of time and are willing to spend it, you can go to this museum. Do not regret it. But these exhibits originated there, only copies or things at the time.

  • You can walk from the city centre. During the period of the Tsarist Russia that grows in the world's largest writer lived in this House for a couple of years of Pushkin. Pushkin maybe now but recognizing him the Museum more closely.

  • Great - but only if you bring your imagination with you. There's not much here in English, so you might want to find a good translator; the woman who was working here when I paid a visit spoke Russian and German pretty well, but no English. And the location itself is hard to find, the house being tucked away among some blocks of flats. By Chisinau standards it's still well worth a visit.
  • It has very rich collection. You can learn a lot about A. Puškin. In every room there is also description of room in english. But still i've missed english names and description of each exponant. The price is very low.
  • Sacred place if you ever read Eugene Onegin. Puskin started to write it here. He lived here in exile 1821- 1823.
  • A wonderful place where you can touch history
