  • Not the standard boring museum, it's actually quite fun, as the description gives some fun facts and not too many boring historical description. The vodka tasting at the end would make you forget everything anyway.
  • Despite coming in the opening hours, we were dennied to visit the museum. (we were told to come... 5 hours later). Waste of time.
  • Too small. Have to buy audio guide for English. Everything in Russian. Information easily accessed from Internet
  • Nice restaurant which must be tried beforehand. No English translation is a key concern of this small museum. Vodka tasting is still a good part of the tour.
  • Fun, quick museum - and you can have a vodka tasting at the end!
