Aleksandr Pushkin Memorial Apartment on the Arbat

Aleksandr Pushkin Memorial Apartment on the Arbat (July 2013)

The Aleksandr Pushkin Memorial Apartment was opened in 1986 on the 155th anniversary of his marriage to Natalia Goncharova in the apartment where the newlyweds lived for several months in 1831. Inside, the exhibition 'Pushkin and Moscow' has seven halls detailing the cultural and everyday life of the city during Pushkin's time. The second floor is taken up by the memorial rooms where Pushkin lived although it is merely a recreation of how it would have looked during his time. The museum is run as a branch of the Aleksandr Pushkin State Museum.  Admission to this museum is free on the third Sunday of the month.
