Museums and exhibitions at the Peter and Paul Fortress

As well as being one of St. Petersburg's most striking historic landmarks, the Peter and Paul Fortress is the main site of the State Museum of the History of St. Petersburg. This large umbrella organization manages several historic buildings and monuments in St. Petersburg and the surrounding region, and uses various premises in the Peter and Paul Fortress to house permanent exhibitions chronicling different aspects of the history of the city and of the fortress itself.

Visitors can currently buy a single ticket valid for all exhibitions over a two-day period, or separate tickets for individual exhibitions. Ticket offices are located in the Boathouse and Ioannovskiy Ravelin.

All exhibitions are open daily from 10am to 6pm (to 5pm on Tuesdays). Closed on Wednesdays.
