Wolkoff Home Museum information
Lonely Planet review
The home of a Russian family is lovingly preserved at this museum. Built in 1826, the house was owned by the merchant clan Wolkoff from 1872 to 1986, and the 10 rooms have been maintained as they were in the late 1800s. Join the hourly guided tours (40 minutes; departing at quarter past the hour) to view them.
