The All-Russian Aleksandr Pushkin Museum was founded in 1879 and is the oldest museum dedicated to the greatest of Russian poets. Today it consists of six branches, two of which are located in the grand building of the Volkonsky Estate on the bank of the River Moika where Pushkin once lived.
Literary and Monograph Exposition
The museum's Literary and Monograph Exposition was founded in 1999 on the 200th anniversary of the birth of Pushkin. It is dedicated to the life and work of Pushkin and occupies several halls on two floors displaying the collection of the All-Russian Aleksandr Pushkin Museum. This includes portraits of Pushkin, his family and acquaintances, rare books and some personal belongings. Also on display are many items and pictures of Pushkin's era.
Aleksandr Pushkin Memorial Museum-Apartment
In 1925 the apartment where Pushkin lived from 1836 up to his death in 1837 was turned into an apartment-museum. In fact Pushkin actually died here, having been brought home after being fatally wounded in a dual. The interiors were recreated to look how they would have looked during Pushkin's final years, based on recollections and historical documents.
