  • Do not cease to admire the interiors and furnishing of aristocratic cultural welfare of families of the Decembrists. The Museum will be interesting for children from 4 years of age and adults. It is better to take a tour, if you're in this Museum and don't know anything about the fate of Belonging. otherwise it will simply walk through an old House. In this museum are allowed by prior agreement. We have Wedding was many years ago. in these interiors fiance if transferred to a time machine in a different era. Recommend buying double the ticket immediately in two House-Museum of Trubetskoy and Belonging. It's cheaper homes differ in exposure, but are there. in the neighbouring block.
