Fyodor Dostoevsky Museum

  Kuznechny per. 5/2 ,   City Centre-3          (+7) 812 571 40 31     21 Mar 2019
The museum dedicated to the author of Notes from the Underground dips into the basement, then leads you all the way up. The main attraction here is Dostoevsky’s apartment, where he lived with his young, dutiful wife Anya Snitkina and their four children. Luckily for Anglophones, every room is accompanied by a laminated page explaining the items and function of the space, including Dostoevsky’s personal study, the family kitchen and Anya’s office. A side exhibit in a darkened room displays biographical photos, personal paraphernalia and published books – there aren’t any notes to be found here, though, so it’s good to know your Fyodor Fast Facts in advance.

This is a lovely, informative museum that gives a good idea of Dostoevsky the man. The little film at the end of the exhibit is especially interesting. Personal factoids about the author are detailed in an animated film, even showing things about how he tended to sit this slightly twisted manner, how he was sympathetic toward the stray dogs that roamed the city, etc. Some of his items of clothing are still there, as I recall. Also there is a lot of information about places in STP that he portrayed in his works. For instance, the apartment where Raskolnikov lived is detailed. Definitely worth the visit. I can't recall just how much was in English, only that there were some English captions and guides around the museum.
