Lonely Planet review for Velimir Khlebnikov Museum
The Velimir Khlebnikov Museum is dedicated to a futurist poet who – together with Mayakovsky and the gang – issued a manifesto urging fellow writers ‘to throw Pushkin out of the steamship of modernity’ and tell Dostoyevsky the news. The museum is located in a flat where his biologist father moved when he founded what is now the Astrakhan Biosphere Reserve.
