  • Small, but a very good Museum. First of all, it's free. Secondly, it is decorated with great wit and taste, if you read "the Other Shore", then surely will delight-it seems in these small halls collected everything mentioned by Nabokov in his memoirs, his book really comes to life. Thirdly, he keeps exclusively by enthusiasts, and it's an excuse to come and express their support. And most importantly, the most-most importantly: here twice a year are international Nabokov readings. On the calendar, you can ask directly at the Museum or see the website of the University. This year I came back as a spectator (allowed freely) and made such a lot of impressions! All lovers of creativity Nabokov unambiguously advise!

  • A wonderful Museum next to St. Isaac's square. The world's only Museum of Nabokov is in a three-storey mansion style of early modernism, owned by Nabokov in 1898 with the House preserved beautiful interiors the Rococo and French Renaissance. The exposition about the Nabokov-Rukavishnikov family history, the writer's life in Russia and abroad, a remarkable collection of butterflies collected writer .. after the nationalization of the Nabokov family home and property in the year 1917 the most valuable part of the art collection and the book collection was donated to the museums and libraries of Russia. The rest of the exhibits have been sold around the world. So much of the Museum's collection now constitute personal belongings, manuscripts of Vladimir Nabokov and his family received from foreign and Russian donors. Recommend a visit.

  • The museum is dedicated to the Vladimir Nabokov, the famous author, who lived there one time
  • Surreal experience.. The museum has more artefacts related to his lepidopteristic career though
  • If you visit Saint Petersburg due cultural interests, this is a place not to miss. The house where writer Vladimir Nabokov was birth and lived. Unluckily not all the building is a museum, but the main rooms. Objects, books, clothes, all related to the autor of "Lolita". The entrance es free. Info and attention in Russian.
  • A small but diverse and informative Museum. I, as a person familiar with virtually no biography of Nabokov, learned a lot. Movie with Parfenov in a very interesting if there's time, I recommend a look. Beautiful interiors (3 room) Unfortunately, green living room closed for restoration.
