I'm not a vodka drinker and so the museum tour and three samples were a bit wasted on me. Those with me really enjoyed both, however. I enjoyed the food served with the vodka and the atmosphere. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

The museum is, indeed, associated to the restaurant. I believe the museum closes at 20:00hrs but you can still have dinner in the restaurant after that hour. Not so sure about the bar in the museum. Enjoy
