  • The detailing is good and shows the French connect of the art history of Russia. Worth a quick visit. 
  • It all started with a simple pastry chef from France by the name of Benoit: he arrived in Petersburg during Catherine II and stayed forever in Russia. His children, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren have compiled a whole dynasty of talented architects and artists, the main brainchild which (in particular, under Nicholas I) became the Peterhof. Benoit family Museum located in Frejlinskom building, designed by Nikolai Leontyevich Benoit. Cosy Museum, filled with sketches, letters, personal objects, family members and therefore is very personal, even intimate nature. Interesting for lovers of history and architecture "narrow" because history is meant to be a pretty specific on the subject institution.

  • The Museum is located to the entrance of the Lower paid Park. In the Museum there is a toilet, a small luggage storage for backpacks, clothes. Are there enough chairs to sit-relax or dress their children. There are no cafes, no-machines with food. ATTENTION. Before purchasing tickets, note books, every time I have for my family buy interesting children's books about the Museum, fountains or simply historical tales for children. The exposition itself-drawings, paintings. But there is a wonderful children's corner with vintage children's toys (the large glass). No tours-walking does not advise, in Peterhof many other museums where you can just look here as important-live the story. I ADVISE YOU to go to children's holidays that suit at the Museum. Her daughter went to Christmas balls-full of delight. And today we were on Carnival. Order time on the phone. Payment on the fact. 3000 rub to a group of 15 people (regardless of how many in the Group of adults and the number of children). Additionally per adult must pay the "admission ticket" (there are concessionary tickets). First, the Museum is closed for visitors at the time of such activities. Group walks the halls one kids on anyone not distracted. Excursion we have conducted girl in rustic Sarafan. First, some told about rules of conduct in the Museum, about the museum itself. A small tour of the museum itself and each room prepared toys, boxes, utensils, which gave visual material children touch-play. The final part was held in the great Hall to the sounds of the tape with the cheerful games. Goodbye children were given a pack with waffles and adult homework "-recipes for pancakes. Thank you to the staff of the Museum-they gave us not just a tour but a veritable feast!
