Mikhail Lermontov Sights

I am aware of the Dostoevsky and Pushkin museums but are there any good Lermontov sights in St. Petersburg?

Unfortunately there is no museum of Lermontov in St.Petersburg, but it might be interesting to walk along the places connected to his life such as Laval's house, the house of karamzin family and so on.

There is a library named after Lermontov, address Liteiniy prospekt, 19 (near subway station "Chernishevskaya"), general email: lib@bplib.ru.

They have sort or "memory room" devoted to Mikhail Lermontov, you can take a look here http://www.lplib.ru/lermontov/ (in russian only) but you'll get an idea what it looks like. There are Lermontov's works and research works about him, pictures, СD and DVD. Closer to the end of the page there is a personal email of a lady who is responsible for all that. I don't know if she speaks English but it doesn't hurt to try to email her and find out how to attend the room. I'm sure it's free of charge (since it's a part of a library not a museum) and probably it's open during the library working hours.

In October 2011 they will host even called "Lermontov's days in SPb" with larger exhibition and some other events.

Manuscripts can be seen at the Pushkin's house - institute of the Russian literature in 4 Makarova embankment (with a special appointment), monuments - in front of the Admiralty building, in Alexander gardens and in front of 54 Lermontovsky prospect (former Nikolayevsky cavalry school - from which he had graduated though in a different place in St.Petersburg).
