  • Not seen 40 years classmate decided to meet, the more she came acquainting themselves with the city of Tyumen region General. Choosing an interview memories of neighbors who lived in this House. To my shame I am far from poetry, and I was not very familiar with creativity Anna Andreevna. But nevertheless, curiosity and desire to learn in me won out and we decided that it would be very interesting. And now, after meeting with her granddaughter Punina and people's artist of Russia Vera Karpova I got and survived the nerve in which the country lived. It was very interesting and informative event was all the more in the form of a conversation. We conquered. Thank you officer who work with all available means.

  • the Fountain House you always want to go with a ceremonial entrance, with the Fontanka River. Once and came, and now-only with the Foundry. But enter the regular Petersburg yard as simple urban dweller. Summer yard green, great bench, after the excursion you can sit back, reflect on what they saw. Visiting the Museum leaves a lot of Chromotherapy. Love the creativity of Anna Andreevna, know her biography, so use the opportunity to dive into the details of her life within these walls, the visiting Peter. Always surprising modesty life of this great woman, or even "bezbytnost" as someone said of the people who knew her. The exposition of the museum recreates many of the details of the St. Petersburg communal flats and the older generation will remember much from my childhood acquaintances, but has already gone from everyday objects. Of course, it is better to see the museum tour. But the audioguide completely will not miss anything meaningful. At the conclusion of the visit to the Museum of Anna Akhmatova very natural look to the room on the ground floor, equipped as the Cabinet of Joseph Brodsky, which Anna Andreevna long before the Nobel Prize naprorochila a great future and that the stimulus is respected and valued. Envy those who for the first time to visit this wonderful Museum.

  • There were no tours, audio guide took one double room with headphones. 200 each ticket plus 150 audioguide. If closely with life and creativity are not familiar, be sure to either tour or audio guide. Very interesting. Ochen proniknovenno. All the horror of that time felt. Even the yard well with winter trees and twilight, and CAW of crows in the yard. Somehow it all came together and left a lot of emotion, reflection. With the work practically is not familiar, now will start.

  • Be sure to purchase a ticket to the audio guide at the checkout. Cashiers themselves can not offer, as in our case occurred. With him, clearly "tour" would be more intense. The ticket office and the museum itself are in different buildings, so, given the cold outside, we decided to walk around the apartment without an audio guide. Do not repeat our mistake)
  • An excellent tour and reminder of stalin era Russia. English language audio tours are available, and some materials, but it is really geared to a Russian speaking audience.
  • Small but quite interesting museum
  • A great place to go if you are tried or just don't like overcrowded and the most famous touristic attractions.
  • One of the most authentic museums in SP. Loved it.
