The building is beautiful , majestic interiors, dramatic staircase. Unfortunately most of the original furniture and art was dispersed to other museums. All that remains of the original are a few fantastic interiors with spectacular views on the Neva. Top floors contain interesting exhibits of...More

Having visited some of the "big" museums and galleries in St Petersburg we were a bit "blinged out" with the opulence and shiny stuff. The Rumyantsev's Mansion Museum was a real antidote, much lower-key, more personal. It largely covers the siege of Leningrad, WWII and...More

This is an off-the beaten track museum, a surprisingly quiet and not crowded place even in high tour season, situated in the city center. Being a former palace of count Rumyantsev, it preserves some beautiful interiors - on one hand, and on the other hand,...More

Don't miss the section on the siege of Leningrad. There is amazing film footage and photographs which really capture what those years must have been like. There was one tiny museum staffer who spoke some English and was delightful. I wonder if she lived through...More
