  • 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.
  • Too small. Have to buy audio guide for English. Everything in Russian. Information easily accessed from Internet
  • Fun, quick museum - and you can have a vodka tasting at the end!
  • 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.
  • The audio guide for rent is going on forever about random stories, not actually about vodka.
