  • If you love Dostoevsky I recommend you stop by. It is divided into two sections: on the one hand the reconstruction of housing, with items donated by the heirs, on the other hand, the collection of documents. Opening hours Tue, Thu, Fri, sat, Sun 11.00-18.00 – Wed 13.00-20.00 – Mon closed. Entrance: 200 rubles (no credit cards accepted). It is available the audioguide, also in Italian, for 150 rubles. Vladimirskaya metro station. When you leave the Museum cross the street and sample the famous local pancakes, hot, delicious and only 8 Pyshki rubles apiece!

  • Long dreamed of getting into this museum. As expected, I waited for new discoveries in the life of a genius of Russian literature. It is a pity, researchers and Museum scientists and did not bother to post genealogical tree Second (at least what is known ...). Some copies of the photos in the literary exposition of the need to update and run a long time on modern technology. Oh and a copy of the parish register, you must bring a complete reversal, rather than cut a fragment. Otherwise everything is excellent.

  • 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!
  • I learned a lot about the life of Dostoevsky and his family. The entrance is only 200 Rubels.
  • If you have read his books, you will love the place.

  • Went to the Museum with an audioguide. Strongly advise him to take. Both rooms were very interesting, as the apartment and exhibition-biography. In General, good museum conveys the atmosphere of that time. If you're in the area, be sure to visit.
