We had a memorable visit to this museum. I am a Russian speaker, so we were able to chat with the invigilators. Once they realised how interested we were in the museum, they warmed and generously shared their knowledge. They gave us sheets written in English for each room. I also had permission to take photographs, which I did after we had toured the whole museum thoroughly. Note that in most Russian museums you have to pay a modest fee to get this permission. Once you've done it, everyone is really nice and helpful. The invigilators kindly went back and turned the lights on each room for me to take photos. Consequently we have a marvelous record of our visit. We also bought interesting material from the publications desk, including a wonderful CD. I highly recommend a visit.
