Interesting info, and recently renovated museum. Not big, so around 1.5h will be enough to go through it.

it was so hard to find - pedestrians had no idea when asked, which was surprising. The building is really impressive and so is the museum. Small but nice and cozy I'd say. Pop in and take a photo with Lenin ;)

This museum you will remember. The town was full of communists just some decades ago and thus the unique museum outside Russia.

The museum is small and offers lots of what I perceived as somewhat piecemeal but highly interesting information about Lenin and his role in the Russian revolution. Worth a visit! Definitely.
