Owner description: Celebrated Russian poet Alexander Pushkin died tragically in this apartment building, which is now a museum honoring his life and works.
Reviewed 24 May 2013

Although this was quite a sad moment (the place where Pushkin died being so young), the place really makes you feel the atmosphere of that time and recall one more time the Pushkin's contribution to the world literature and poetry. People to whom Pushkin's name mean something - visit this place.

The organization of the visit is quite complicated. There are excursions at some fixed times (every 20-30 mins) for which you need to buy ticket in advance + there are groups of students/kids + the possibility to take an audioguide (but the people with audiguides also enter at some specific times). During the peak season there is no chance to take an excursion for the closest times (next 1-2 hours).
Probably the best tactic (as we did) is to step in there in the morning and buy tickets for the evening/2nd half of the day. Then visit something else and return back at the excursion time.

I recently visited this Museum with my mum and we both enjoyed it. The museum was very busy when we arrived and we were told to return in ten minutes, after finding the lovely little coffee shop in the museum square, we returned and a queue had formed, however the lady recognised us and called us forward to the front of the line. The museum itself was small but lovely, the audio guide was worth the money, as it was very detailed. For me the highlight was being able to see Pushkin's library. A little gem of a museum and well worth a visit!

The Pushkin Apartment Museum tells about the latest period of Alexander Pushkin's life and works. That was his last apartment. He died there in January 1837. The apartment had been recreated to its primary state with the help of historical documents and recollections of Pushkin's friends. The items that are displayed here are objects that belonged to him and his family: the desk where he worked, his notes and manuscripts, the deadly duel pistols, the shirt he wore at the time, the death mask and others. Very moving….

Really enjoyed the visit and the audioguide is really good and thoroughly informative without being boring. You would want to take it as there are tours scheduled in groups and usually you would wait for about an hour or more, depending on the demand. If you get an audioguide though, they would let you right in. In theory.

In practice I was sitting next to the cloak room for about fifteen minutes before they took my coat, gave me an audioguide and let me in. That was the only hiccup of the visit, everything was otherwise very good. Great place to see. If you don't have time, at least enter the courtyard to see the statue of Pushkin and his apartment from outside.

So convenient for Pushka Inn residents as its right next door. Interesting and sad . Loved the library particularly but would have liked to have known what happened next to the wife an the killer. But nothing. It was a little repetitativebut I enjoyed it (having only tried onegin and found it unreadable in translation)
