Museum of Music in the Sheremetev Palace

  Nab. reky Fontanky 34 ,   City Centre-1          (+7) 812 272 44 41     more than a year ago
The wealthy Sheremetyev family lived in this palace until the 1917 revolution. Also known as the Fountain house, because of the large quantity of them in the garden. These days, the palace has a permanent display of the Sheremetyev's private art collection, and it is home to the Museum of Musical Life. Although not the most lively joint, musicians and fans of musical history will certainly appreciate this museum. It showcases an extensive collection of Russian and European musical instruments, some from as early as the 17th century. Upstairs you will find a series of elaborate rooms with other intriguing musical history, some of which is in English.

Visited here in 2004. Enjoyed a delightful concert by members of the Opera Theatre musicians and champagne reception. The musical instrument collection was interesting.
