The National Pushkin Museumm


The National Pushkin Museum

The No.12 house on the embankment of the Moika River is the place where the most famous Russian poet - A.S. Pushkin - lived the last months of his life, before he died in January 1837. After his death other people lived in this flat and the museum devoted to him was opened only in 1925. The museum captures the true legacy of this legendary Russian hero.

The museum was fully renovated to replicate the exact state of the flat when Pushkin died. 2 of the most interesting rooms are Pushkin’s study and the poet’s library containing more than 4500 volumes in 14 different languages. There are several of his personal belongings on display including his death mask, a lock of his hair and the waistcoat which he was wearing when he passed away.

The National Pushkin Museum

The National Pushkin Museum in St. Petersburg was the first national museum dedicated to the poet Alexander Pushkin. The main goal of the creation of the Pushkin Museum was to concentrate in it "all materials connected with life and creative work of Alexander Pushkin". The Museum holds tens of thousands of works of art connected with Pushkin's life, work and epoch; nearly all of the poet's personal belongings that have been preserved to the present time; illustrations for his works; the poet's portraits; hundreds of portraits of Pushkin's contemporaries; paintings dedicated to different episodes of the poet's life; and views of various places connected with his biography. The authors of the majority of these works are celebrated Russian artists of the eighteenth and the nineteenth centuries. The National Pushkin Museum has become the most important research and educational centre for Pushkin studies in Russia. About half a million people visit the Museum annually.
