- This two-storey 19th-century house is a very interesting place for those who would like to know more about Russia's great poet Alexander Pushkin and about the Moscow of his time. This house was a very significant part of Pushkin's life; here he had a famous bachelor party before his wedding celebration. He married the beautiful Natalia Goncharova on the following day, and he spent the first three months of his married life here. The museum has many portraits of Pushkin and his friends, numerous engravings of 19th-century Moscow and copies of Pushkin's handwriting. A beautiful statue of Pushkin and his ball gowned wife stands in front of the museum.
