Lonely Planet review
Admirers of bearded revolutionaries won’t want to miss the small Lenin museum, housed in the Workers’ Hall where Lenin and Stalin first met at a conference in 1905. His life is documented by way of photos and documents; it’s a little dry but it’s fascinating to see, for example, his old school report (Vladimir was a straight-A student) or a threadbare couch that the man slept on. There’s a crazy gift shop where you can buy Lenin pens, badges, T-shirts and other souvenirs of the Soviet era.
