  • This is definitely one of the most impressive buildings on the promenade des Anglais. Solemn white columns of the portico with Corinthian capitals, rich high relief on the pediment. Arched zavershija Windows of the first floor. In order to see the beauty of the mansion, you can compare it with a little further Potemkin houses no. 52 and no. 56 of the Anglican Church. On the façade-plate that is an architectural monument of 18 century house n. p. Rumyantsev (e. l. Kochubey), built in 1720-1730-IES, architect a. Glinka, sculptor and p. Martos (author of the very high), the truth is, there are written and the fact that the building was rebuilt in the 1820-ies. Is protected by the State. Under the eaves-gold embossed lettering: "from the State Chancellor count Rumyantsev for a good education." Of course, to all sorts of different owned plot Rumiantseva persons, there were other buildings on it. Rumyantsev was a diplomat, after the conclusion of the diplomatic service held various positions from one of the Board of Directors of noble Bank to the Minister for Foreign Affairs. In 1809, with the participation of Rumyantsev concluded a peace treaty with Syria, then Earl got high Chin Chancellor. In parallel he engaged in collecting items of Russian history. And your House bequeathed to give under the Museum. So that the building served the Museum as much from 1831 onwards, but not before our time, after the death of his brother Rumyantseva its sold more than once, House worked and how easy profitable. Rumyantsev collection were distributed to various museums. And after the revolution that not only housed in this building! The current museum came only in 1938, and received new buildings right up to the beginning of 90-ies, when settled last communal apartments. As Kochubei here how sideways?

  • You need to visit this museum if you want to meet true Peterburgzy. The people working here can tell you so much about history and they are incredibly friendly. Actually I have never ever met such enthusiastic museum workers in Russia or anywhere in the world. An excursion is very recommended (but I am not sure if there are any in English, please check before). The exposition is a little bit eclectic but very charming or touching (as in case with WW2).
  • A very interesting place. A visit there is go back in history. In the Rumyantsev mansion were presented exhibits about the great Otechesvennoj war and the siege of Leningrad. These zhksponaty as if voshhvrashhajut back in the year 1941, when the life of the Russians was the caring Liu Lei. I advise to visit and plunge into the atmosphere of heavy, hungry life.

  • Visited today at health day with the children in the Rumyantsev mansion, tours Besieged Leningrad. Excursion very very informative. The guide is very accessible and detail all told. Children third grade sat almost with their mouths open. Even we adults too have learned a lot of new and terrible about this difficult time of our city. Of course the Museum must go with a guide, because reading just about exhibits, you don't learn as much interesting.

  • Excellent exposure. Most liked about the NEP and the 30-th years. About the siege of Leningrad too much, just at it remained less forces. Just spent 2.5 hours in the Museum (without a guide), ideally on a full inspection I'd laid 3:00.
