“Fantastic ”

“Odd place to visit ”
This jewel of a museum, hidden inside the Artistic Industrial Academy, is worth a visit both for the magnificent building that houses it and for its treasure trove of glass, ceramics, furniture and other fine arts and antiques.

The receptionist was very nice, and to her credit explained that the 700 ruble entry fee required me to join a group tour that was only offered in Russian. Based on what I had read, I was expecting a multifaceted art experience, but the tour...More

After we bought entrance tickets and entered, why every single person working there was so rude and angry at us? Maybe because they are all used to treat their "art school" students like that, so they decided why make a difference for paying adult visitors?...More

It was hard to find the building, and once I found it, it was hard to find the right door. They let me in and I was all alone! Once in, it was a circuitous route along corridors, up stairs, down stairs, more corridors, few...More

My husband and I were in St. Petersburg in early May 2016 and I was really looking forward to the Applied Art Museum. It looked amazing! It's part of an art school, and when we walked in there was a guard checking each person's identification...More
