Nice place. Close to main tourist places. It is interesting to be in flat of so big personality like Pushkin, but museum is not very interesting, little bit boring.

I liked the museum, it is really interesting. It allows to understand how great Russian poet was. Especially will be liked by lovers of history and literature, although the interiors are also interesting. And what excursions! You will listen! To visit it is necessary!

Pushkin house museum and Pasternak house museum in Moscow are the two finest in Russia. Not to be missed as both are full of the history and life of these men.

We had a guide to take us around the palace and grounds she knew lots of information so we got a real taste of how it has been restored since it was looted in WW2. Its a beautiful palace inside and out.

SPB Tours included this stop with many other sites on the (3) day package. The tour guide, provided by SPB Tours made this Museum come alive. Through her visual story telling the statutes positioned in the museum felt real.
