  • Cute little Museum in the heart of St. Petersburg, located on the first floor at the address Bolshaya Morskaya, 47. Entrance is free of charge. Absolutely stunning wood ceilings, gorgeous collection of butterflies, butterfly graphics, made Nabokov for his wife Faith, family photography writer, pictures of places where he lived, with printed books in different languages, his works, brief biographical data, film l. Parfenova interview with son and sister of writer-all jetotmozhno see this cozy quiet almost deserted Museum. When you exit the Museum doors advise to climb to the third floor of the building and view saved stained glass Windows are unusually bright colors, as well as the stained glass window above the front door of the building. The House itself is a fine example of Art Nouveau.

  • The current museum was the family home where he was born and lived the writer Vladimir Nabókov approximately 18 years, time that the family were exiled from the socialist revolution that gave way to the Soviet Union. The Museum preserves, in perfect condition, a beautiful inlaid doors, floors and ceilings. It features the works of Nabokov and also exhibits their collections and drawings of butterflies, since it was a notable entomologist, in addition to brilliant writer. There are also exhibitions of paintings in one of the lounges. It seems to me a very interesting visit, not only for the people who enjoy his books, but to meet inside a typical mansion of the aristocratic people of Petersburgo in the 19th century.

  • 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!

  • 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.
