An unjustly overlooked museum, the Rumyantsev Mansion is truly fascinating. A first comment: You MUST come here with a Russian-speaking guide. All of the exhibits are in Russian only. There is no English labeling whatsoever, nor are there audioguides. Yes, you can get the idea...More

The building is beautiful , majestic interiors, dramatic staircase. Unfortunately most of the original furniture and art was dispersed to other museums.

A number of exhibitions on different themes - choose what you like or just wonder around. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Not sure about much info in English though

This is an off-the beaten track museum, a surprisingly quiet and not crowded place even in high tour season, situated in the city center. Being a former palace of count Rumyantsev, it preserves some beautiful interiors - on one hand, and on the other hand,...More
