Pushkin House-Museum on Arbat
Located on Arbat Street, this two-storey house belonged to the Khitrovo noble family. Famous Russian poet Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837) rented for six months in 1831 but actually only lived there from January 23rd to May 15th.
A part of the museum recounts the architectural past of Moscow and the early 19th century daily life. The rest of the museum is entirely dedicated to Alexander Pushkin. His childhood, life and work are reminded. The museum also explains the predominant part he had for a city like Moscow.
The house-museum, now an important cultural meeting place, is a branch of the Alexander Pushkin State Museum.
