  • It is a must-see museum to visit. It captures the atmosphere of the darkest years of the Great Purges. The Akhmatova's museum is on the upper floor. On the floor there is a Joseph Brodsky...

  • I thought the entrance was from the Fontanka but a lady directed me to Liteyney Prospekt and I found the sign and the traditional St Petersburg archway into a garden and signs to her house...

  • This museum is in a really lovely garden square with interesting (in Russian) graffiti on the surrounding walls. Liteyny Prospect (avenue) is a really nice street with some good bars and cafes

  • A magnificent apart-museum of a well known Russian poet. A perfect audio-guide, which make you feel the atmosphere of the XX century and the tragic life of Anna Akhmatova.
  • Didn’t rent an audio guide, but they have English intro for each and every room. Love the White Hall at the start, it depicts a lively figure of the remarkable poet through her texts, some photos and objects as well. Staff there are really nice, helped me navigate and enjoy the museum much better. Also love the garden.
  • You should pay with the ticket foe an audioguide. It is really worthwhile. The rooms and objects only come to life if you hear about Akhmatova's dramatic life and the circumstances under which she lived there.
  • Good and very informative Museum. The exhibitions are magnificent, you feel the atmosphere, you feel as if Akhmatova still lives here
  • Absolutely horrible evil and rude babushka checking tickets at the flat itself. Soviet style ridiculously rude attitude. The museum itself is wonderful though.
