This place will transport you to daily life in Russia in the 19th and 20th centuries.
The idea of studying the lives of ordinary people to gain a greater understanding of any culture is the premise of this museum dedicated to everyday life in 19th- and 20th-century Russia. The collection includes craft from across the centuries, tradition clothing and popular art. The closest metro is Gostiny Dvor or Nevsky Prospekt. This museum is also home to an impressive ethnography library, religious artefacts, woodwork, ironwork and even some typical Russian buildings such as an igloo, a yurt or a chum. Adult entry costs around 350 roubles (8 euros) and you can also visit the treasure rooms for an additional 250 roubles (just under 6 euros). The museum is closed on Mondays and the last Friday of each month.
