During the Soviet era communal apartments were located here, so there's nothing from a real Pushkin life (he lived just 1 year here) Yes, there are some exhibits, taken from antiques stores. And note, most things are never been owned by Pushkin! These things are taken from his friends or his family! Most halls are empty at all....There's no information... More

Tickets: 180 rub to enter, Photo: 100 rub, Audio guide: 200 rub I got all these tickets and turned out to be the good choice. There is an English description on paper in almost every room, which probably very closely matches up with what you hear on the audio. However, sometimes the audio tells you just a little bit more.... More

Just wandering in one of the most beautiful streets in Moscow, the Old Arbat, we suddenly found ourselves in the front of this very nice building. Here, after getting married with Natalia Goncharova, Pushkin and his young wife moved in. That was a rented house in Old Arbat street and now is turned into the house-museum. Inside the house we...

I really enjoyed visiting this Museum. It is officially the A.S Pushkin Memorial apartment. It is part of the A.S. Pushkin State Museum which has several other locations. Pushkin lived briefly at this location before he moved to Saint Petersburg. The museum gives a good feel for Moscow in Pushkin's time, and shows a bit of what his life was... More

My wife and I are first time to Moscow Russia... one of the most difficult things while staying here is .. we can not read any signs or remarks all written in Russian language only.. no English at all anywhere. Same story for Pushkin's place. Unfortunately, Its closed on Monday we went..

Was expecting more. The building and setting is interesting and so are the displays of some of the master's possessions. However the furniture is not authentic and the flat lacks authenticity. Some explanations are in English, but rather limited. I sent less than 30 minutes and was slightly disappointed.

Pushkin's house museum is very homely and elegant. They have sheets in English so you can get the full understanding of Pushkins life! The furniture was very elegant and the wooden floor beautiful.

Pushkin stayed here for only a few months after his marriage, and it shows. Limited on Pushkin artefacts, the museum struggles to find a purpose. There is an A4 sheet in English in every room, but it doesn't tell you much. If you want to find out about Pushkin, this museum will not help you. Needs a permit for photos,... More

This is quite basic old house where is mainly posters and some small decoration items. Does not even look home without furniture. Most interesting part for me was that in every room is different kind of piece of hand craft work in wood floors. If you are thinking about what kind of floor might be best for your home visit...

Staying in Arbat

Neighbourhood Profile
Arbat
Crowds of tourists, both local and international take in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds and turn to the side streets and boulevards where calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
