Behind the Alexandrinsky Theatre, appropriately enough, you’ll find this museum, a treasure-trove of items relating to the Russian theatre including model sets, posters and costumes. A section aimed at children has great models of the Mariinksy stage and antique contraptions used to create effects like the sound of wind, rain and trains. There's also a graceful glass and metal automaton in the entrance hall that springs to life as people pass by.
