  • The name partially compliant content. There are a few interesting permanent exhibitions: "history of the House on the embankment. Washing, 32 "," tenement house. Musical Salon "," Publishing House of the beginning of 20 century, history of typography Spb in the 18 century ". I liked the room where exhibited cutting guillotine, butcher-block table, press, printing and binding machine. Interesting interior of the apartment house, but dark, gloomy and inaccessible (for tape NOT GO!).

  • Interestingly, in addition to the pressroom, the Museum includes the Hall of the building's history, in which it is located, the Interior of the pre-revolutionary apartments with great collection of musical toys and instruments of the 19th century, a very funny collection of Soviet television sets and change the exposure. Not a priority, but very interesting Museum.
