    This museum will delight lovers of theatre and dance. A few hundred meters from the Gostiny Dvor metro, it offers on the 5th floor of a beautiful collection of miniature theaters from all eras, costumes and objects theatre, documents, personal effects... etc and on the 3rd floor, a beautiful collection around dance and Ballet not to be missed. It is lovely, interesting, beautiful. If you practice Ballet, you have to go, because there's a very surprising animation. So I prefer not to talk about, for you to discover! And if're you lucky, you may be guided by a lady, named Galina, who accompanied us throughout the visit to the floor, simply by kindness and because she was thrilled to be able to speak french! (don't offer him a tip, it may be to "yell" at by his boss (a real Harpy!), and above all because she did it because "it's an honour"...) Beautiful person in a beautiful Museum

    2 in the Museum Exposition-on 3 and 5 floors. We visited 3-m (5-th has been closed for a children's event) and were pleasantly surprised. The Museum is made with love and meets the basic modern notions about the Museum. It is interactive. The Museum stands as a multi-layered curtains, which can be moved. Demonstration clips with old (early 20 century) theatrical numbers on screens built right into the exhibit. Great Hall devoted to avant-garde Theater of the beginning of the last century with stunning constructivist staircase. Ballet Pointe shoe collection Hall, excellent photo ballet stars and Ballet machine, whose insistent request of the housekeeper I stood up consistently in 5 Ballet positions under the gaze of a giant Tsiskaridze, who gave me a lesson with wall screen. All of the above really pleases. The inveterate theatregoer discovers here a lot about the idols of the past. The man has never been in the theater certainly wants it to go. I described here only a little bit that I liked. Going down with 3 floors, hold for a ladder for the sake of art-object "Smoking" and the cosy interfloor areas with padded stools, get additional aesthetic pleasure
