Vodka Museum Moscow Reviews
For those who are into it May 10, 2009
Vodka Museum is not among the most well-known and popular sites in Moscow but this makes it not a crowded place which is a gift to any tourist and explorer.
It is located at the complex “Kremlin in Izmaylovo”, not far from the Partizanskaya metro station. Entrance is cheap: 50 rub (about $1.6) for Russians and 100 rub (about $3) for foreigners but it is worth paying a little bit extra and having a guided tour: 100 rub pp for Russians and 150 rub pp for foreigners (English speaking guide available). Guided tours are to be booked in advance (check the museum website for contact).
The museum is not that big – the major part of the display is vodka bottles of different shapes and colours. What is more interesting is the history part telling about how vodka was created and produced during centuries. Some objects and tools are funny, some are unexpected so having a guide would be a good idea.
Located not in the city centre where the major attractions are, Vodka Museum is worth visiting if:
1) You’ve already marked all popular places off;
2) You are a foreign tourist in Moscow and your friends back home would love to hear your vodka stories (vodka related souvenirs are also available);
3) You are local who wants to show some of unbeaten paths to a TB;
4) You are looking for a good deal on souvenirs that are on sale at Izmaylovo Vernisage (good prices, yay!).
