Museum of Printing

Located in a 19th century building on the Moika River Embankment which housed various different editorial offices, including those of Pravda, the famous Communist newspaper, for six months in 1917, the Museum of Printing has a permanent exhibition tracing the development of printing in St. Petersburg from the beginning of the 19th century to the October Revolution. Among the items on display are a wide variety of original editions and a collection of printing presses from the early 20th century. Two rooms are dedicated to a reconstruction of the Pravda offices. The museum is housed in extremely elegant premises, but the exhibitions are fairly dry. For Russian speakers, the guided tours are more interesting, and it is well worth organizing an English-speaking guide.
