₽50 - ₽100
Presentation
This museum occupies a wing of the house 28 on Zagorodny Prospekt, where Rimsky–Korsakov had spent the last fifteen years of his life, from 1893 to 1908. It was here that he composed eleven of his fifteen operas, among them Sadko, The Fairy–Tale of Tzar Sultan, The Tzar's Bride, Kashchey, the Immortal, The Golden Rooster. After the composer's and his wife's death, for fifty years the apartment was shared by several families. Nevertheless, all private belongings, as well as the furniture, have been carefully preserved by the composer's heirs.

Four rooms in the museum are reconstructions of original interiors, the centrepiece of which is a grand piano played on by Scriabin, Rachmaninov, and Stravinsky among others at Rimsky-Korsakov's celebrated musical soirees, which attracted many of the leading lights of St. Petersburg's cultural world, including Feodor Chaliapin and the painters Ilya Repin, Vasiliy Serov, and Mikhail Vrubel.
