    House beautiful, but during the Soviet time there was communal, so the little preserved authentic details. Better to go with a guide. You can make a cute photo to memory.

    It is the merchant's House Museum, Tetjushkina Museum itself is not particularly impressed. though the Guide nice lady, very interesting to talk about the life of the merchant. And here's the House itself is very beautiful, full wood with a beautiful façade.

    Recommend to everyone. Of all the attractions of Astrakhan wants to dedicate this House-Museum. What miracle-masters were in the Russian Empire! Bright, intricate carving, the House looks like from a fairy tale. Domestic interiors shows by the time merchant family lived here. The workers are very friendly, knowledgeable, drawing on his business. I really enjoyed the information received. Even somehow became another look at that era.
