Interesting fact: This building is a rare example of preserved typical house of the first half of XVIII century. Peter the Great ordered to build residential and institutional buildings according to certain models. Therefor if you “clone” the Engineers House in your mind, you can imagine, how the Petrine St. Petersburg looked like. Now from this Petersburg hardly anything left.

Museum: Here are various temporary exhibitions, usually of little interest to the average tourist.
