Explore the history of one of Russia's most famous products at Russian Vodka Museum, home to an extensive collection of bottles, accessories, and types of the well-known spirit. Produced in Eastern Europe and Russia since medieval times, the drink today has become an integral part of national culture. Visit the museum and learn about vodka's influence on rural and urban regions alike, and why it was considered valuable enough to be used as currency. Join a guided tour for more information about vodka's production, use, and origins. Try some of the "little water" for yourself in the museum's tasting room, where after the tour you can sample three varieties of the drink. Keep in mind that information about the displays is in Russian only.

  • 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!
