In 1831 Pushkin took an apartment on the first floor of this house with his young wife. This was the first and only Moscow apartment of the poet to be preserved.

This is a lovely cyan building located on the old Arbat pedestrianized street. However, the museum itself is rather small and there are no English explanations at all (unless you take the English guided tour). Skip the museum and just admire the lovely building.

The blue Pushkin House Museum on Old Arbat Street is easily accessible and the exhibits on Pushkin life time can be found there. For non-Russian visitors, try to take an English language audio guide for easy understanding on what you see at site.

While it is true as other reviewers have pointed out that Pushkin spent little time here and that of the artifacts only the writing desk and the letters actually belonged to Pushkin it is still worth a visit. It is right on old arbat and...More

During the Soviet era communal apartments were located here, so there's nothing from a real Pushkin life (he lived just 1 year here) Yes, there are some exhibits, taken from antiques stores. And note, most things are never been owned by Pushkin! These things are...More

Crowds of tourists, both local and international take
in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New
Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt
Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open
to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring
one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds
and turn to the side streets and boulevards where
calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
