Cruiser Aurora, St. Petersburg

(460+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
All aboard Cruiser Aurora, a training ship that played a central role in the beginning of the Great October Socialist Revolution. The ship first launched in 1900 and joined the Russian Navy in 1903. The ship-turned-museum played an active part in the Russo-Japanese war, World War I, and World War II, but it is remembered best for stymieing international intervention during the Soviet uprising of 1917. Climb on board to see what life was like for the sailors working on the ship. The exhibit provides additional information on the battles that the cruiser took part in, its history, and the people who sailed the ship.

  • If you go to the Peter and Paul Fortress, drop by to see the Cruiser Aurora, anchored not far from there. It is considered one of the symbols of St. Petersburg as it is the Cruiser that fired the first cannon shot beginning the Russian revolution of 1917 that will put an end to the Tsar. Admission is 600 rubles.

  • Several times approached the Cruiser but never found the time to visit this legend! My son now serves on Board of the Aurora and I of course immediately flew to see him! Two joy overflowed me! I saw his son and finally visited the Cruiser! Son very much talked about. It was a pleasure to teach our youth. the history of our country. And they are so advanced know about ship! Very impressed with the exposition of the Museum. status in which all is All nachishheno. all the glitters! Thank you very much. the Commander for the troops! Many tourists try to take pictures on the ship with sailors in uniform))

  • I have lived in St. Petersburg 44 years from birth. The Aurora was in childhood. And here my kids wanted to get there. I honestly wanted to too. And the day came when we, the whole family went to the Aurora. Tickets us a bit of a disappointment, especially after visiting the Museum. For such money could make exposure more exciting for all ages. In reality there is absolutely nothing to see. Visitors tell stories and reveal the history of the cruiser. However, the show itself fully Cruiser you will fail. Passing through the deck, where you come down, in fact, nothing really interesting don't see. Will not allow you to be felled, cabins, engine room etc etc the Aurora dedicated 40 percent of internal exposure. Summing up, I can point out that you can put a tick next to "visit the Aurora". No more. From visiting the Museum I have children emotion zero.
