This 17th-century stone building once held the administrative chambers of Pskov. Today it houses a small museum that gives some insight into the workings and officialdom of the old city; there's also a decent souvenir shop on the premises and an information centre. Outside, you'll find preserved foundations of a dozen 12th-to-15th century churches that once made up the independent city of Dovmont Town (Довмонтов город).
