Insitute of Russian Literature, Pushkinskiy Dom, Museum of Russian Literature

This museum of for serious buffs of Russian Literature. The left half of the building is a university devoted to Russian Literature. On the right are the arichives and museum devoted to Russian writers.
Collection started with original manuscripts of Pushkin now includes many major writers.
The Museum has whole rooms devoted to Pushkin, Tolstoy and Dostoevsky and many artifacts and portraits. The furniture is all antique and you can get up close. It is not yet all roped off and unaccessible, but hsi is because you can only visit by guided excursion.
You can ask at the front desk for a tour of the museum and you will be allowed upstairs. Cost about 150 rubles for foreigners. The guide speaks only Russian but will give a personal tour and answer questions. This is off the beaten path and has not so many visitors.
