Went to the museum while on a tour and got to learn a little about Russia and their History of making vodka. Got to taste three different vodkas at the end which was the highlight of the tour.

Excellent food and services. The classic decor is amazing and brings you back to the past. Suggestion: Order the Ossetra Caviar. The combination of sour cream, Bini and the caviar was just a new flavour I have never tasted. Enjoy p

Really small museum presenting the history of vodka. Unfortunately alll the signs and tables are only in Russian so the audio guide is recommended. At the end you get to taste 3 different vodkas which - of course - were really good!

The guided tour in english is better than the non guided or audio tour. It includes three vodkas and snack and is 600 rubles - more vodka available to buy. The restaurant attached is also well worth a visit.

The museum is, indeed, associated to the restaurant. I believe the museum closes at 20:00hrs but you can still have dinner in the restaurant after that hour. Not so sure about the bar in the museum. Enjoy
