Avant-garde is a bit of an umbrella term for a host of various artistic movements active in the early twentieth century. This museum is primarily dedicated to the activities and impact of two protagonists, husband and wife, Mikhail Matyushin and Elena Guro. Located in Matyushin's home, a beautifully restored timber 19th century house for which its worth making the trip to see, there is a really wonderful non-stiflling atmosphere here.

We went to this little all-in-it-self-avantgarde-tree-house that stands there in between high and so not matching stone high-rises. We weren't actually that impressed by the exhibition - at first. When we came to the room that you find as long away from the stairs as you come on the second floor, and the quiet, grumphy little woman that followed us around all the time pulled away two layers of wall on rails we where all stunned. She reveled the notes of Mikhail, the notepapers he had written, that weren't ordinary notepapers. He had used colours instead of notes and it was a stunning sight! I'm not even musical but it still made a deep impression on me, and all my friends too! After that fascinating masterpiece we all got really interested of the rest of the room. It was by far the moast interesting an probably the moast valuable room in that house, because the walls were full of impressionism-art, each and every of them masterpieces that put you thinking and made you stand with your mouth open but with nothing to say.It's so worth it going there when you're ones in S:t Petersburg!
