Stieglitz Museum of Applied Arts

Art and antiques.

This museum really is worth a visit. It is a hidden gem that never fails to impress visitors with its beauty, both inside and out. It is very close to the Mikhailovsky Castle but is not often included on more traditional sightseeing routes. Although the museum was first created to give classes to Russian artists, today it is the perfect place for anyone interested in art and antiquities. The broad-ranging collection includes metalwork, porcelain and decorative arts. The entrance is at 13 Solyanoy Pereulok Street. You go up a flight of stairs, turn right, go along the corridor and down the narrow staircase on the left. The main entrance to the museum is on the bottom floor of the building. Finding it can be quite a task, but with these instructions you can't go wrong. Entry costs around 60 roubles (1.5 euros).
