Learn the story of the life and death of one of Russia's most beloved writers and step into his private world at Alexander Pushkin Museum and Memorial Apartment. The all-encompassing museum complex celebrates not only the great poet himself, but also the golden age of Russian culture. The main museum display is spread through multiple rooms of a historic Saint Petersburg stone mansion where Pushkin last resided. See the paintings, engravings, and other authentic artifacts honoring the poet and his contemporaries. The highlight of the exhibit is the carefully restored apartment where Pushkin lived and died after being fatally wounded in a duel. Many items inside of it were Pushkin’s personal possessions.

  • If you have decided to visit Alexander Sergeevich, your visit to the apartment on the Moika River 12 begins probably with Moika embankment and Nevsky prospect. Turning to the Nevsky can feel a different era ... here goes very little machines ... feeling that this waterfront walked Pushkin. Up to 12 meters of houses 200-300 and pass them to reluctantly)) Better on the sunny side (if not especially hot) because the Sun in St. Petersburg very little. In a quiet courtyard on the Moika River 12 romantic remember or read something from verses)) the apartment itself-can be proud of the personal belongings of the poet that Soviet museums is not always the best time to visit Ten or eleven am

  • Got into this Museum from the second attempt: the first time was it still a schoolgirl, but visit it before the end could not, fainted. This time it worked out. Can't say that visiting of this museum me unimpressed, but believe, visit this museum all lovers of literature! A visit to the Museum may not impressed, because the guide told without a soul a memorized text, and when entering the Museum staff were not very friendly.

  • We came with friends in 3:00, tickets with a guide was not, had to buy only with audio guide. But I'm not upset, all perfectly told. Plunged while alive, presented all the described pattern.
