Visiting Pushkin’s home, now a museum, proved to be one of the highlights of my trip to St Petersburg. The rooms are beautifully maintained and it really does feel like you’re visiting someone’s house. I highly recommend using the audio guide, it’s highly informative but doesn’t bore you with millions of facts. The apartment is a short walk from the Hermitage.

The Pushkin Apartments Museum is the place, where the great poet lived the last year of his life. It is located in the center of Saint Petersburg and here you can learn a lot about his life and his artworks, you can see his library and you can follow the last days of his life. Very interesting, especially for lovers of his poems.

The great Russian poet Aleksandr Pushkin (1799-1837) lived in this apartment with his wife and children in the last part of his life. You are given an audio guide for your tour through the apartment; the length of the guide is perfectly timed for how much there is to see in each room, and doesn't drag on. You don't get the whole story of Pushkin's life--the focus of the narrative is the final stage of his life leading up to his death in a duel over his wife. It was very sad--I had tears in my eyes by the end! If you're a fan of Pushkin (and it's hard not to be!), it is also exciting to see his library and working space. Well worth a visit.

You have to go to this museum, if you want to discover more information about one of the greatest poets in the world.
You can get the english audio guide.
The museum is mostly dedicated for last days of Pushkin. The house is very authentic.

Really did not know what to expect other than having heard that the buildings had virtually been destroyed during the 2nd world war. The restoration work is amazing, everything looks original and certainly gave us a feel of what it was actually like in its day. The drive from St Petersburg is really worth while.

Set in a magnificent palace on the Moika, the apartment recreates Pushkin's life before the fatal and absurd duel in which he was killed. It is a particularly cruel irony that two weeks before that fatal day he finished Eugen Onegin and had Eugen kill his best friend Prince Lensky. The museum is very well appointed. We took the audioguide and were very well pleased with it. What really struck us and moved us is the presence of so many Russians among the visitors (we were the only foreigners). As in the Hermitage where you see many young soldiers with their sweethearts, this told us a lot about the way Russians cherish their culture and their history--I wish it were the same in Victor Hugo's apartment on the place des Vosges or in Georges Sand's house in Nohant.

No visit to St. Petersburg is complete without learning about Russia's greatest poet. It is best to come inside this museum well prepared, but if you don't have the time to read the entire Evgeny Onegin, find a summary and and get some information on Pushkin's life. Even without knowledge of Russian you can have a great experience (audio guides are available), and you will look at the city differently after visiting this museum. I realize that all this sounds vague, but one can only get as much from this museum as he/she puts in. I understood about 50% of what the guide was saying (and I understood everything of what other guides said at other museums and guided trips!). However, just seeing the personal belongings and the death mask, being in the place where Pushkin lived and going into the street afterwards was an unforgettable experience.

We are a bit of literature-fan so we visited the late apartment of the big poet of russian. The museum's garden is under construction which make a bit difficult the entrance. Also, there were a tonne of russian students who visited the museum in the autumn season. The apartment is very interesting itself, even if we are not interested in Pushkin's life, we can see how was the idealtipycal middle-class apartment and how they lived in these times. If you are interested in Pushkin as well, you will enjoy it much more...but to be honest, at the end of the tour, I was so overloaded already with the greatness of Pushkin I had a satiation. He was presented as a half-god superhero...
