Three floors of this school building hold an outstanding collection, loving complied by enthusiastic locals, of artefacts relating to art and culture during the siege of Leningrad. As the title of the museum implies, despite the death and destruction in the city at that time, art, music, theatre and poetry continued to flourish. One room is devoted to Shostakovich’s famous Leningrad symphony with original manuscripts, photos and instruments on display. The other rooms are devoted to ballet and theatre, poetry and fine arts and feature original paintings, posters, photos and theatre costumes. The last room is dedicated to children who lived through the siege and has a touching collection of toys, sketches and clothing. Note that the museum can only be visited by prior arrangement and it is advisable to bring a Russian speaker with you to get the most out of the exhibits.
