  • It was worth the visit, but not as nice, attractive and informative as I expected. Could improve on information for visitors. Maybe we should have gotten the audioguides and that would have made it a better experience.
  • Perfect place to meet your favorite writer of life!.. there are English audible translators and papers to read and it is allowed to take photos and make videos. Nice staff!
  • Something you have to see when you're in St. Petersburg. It's very authentic, rebuild as it used to be, full of memorabilia and curiosities. The staff isn't very friendly, but that's the only remark I had that concluded me to give 4 stars instead of 5.
  • Very cozy small museum. I have learn about his personal life more then anywhere. Good souvenirs.
  • Quite touching, but I love Dostoevskij. You can visit the house where he died and see some of his stuff ( other stuff are descendants') . It is very small but I loved it!
