Moscow launches new museum and tour pass

18th Dec 2012

People heading to Moscow on tailor made tours can now secure access to some of the city's biggest attractions with a new sightseeing pass.

The Russian capital, which was recently hailed in a TripAdvisor tourism poll, has launched a new pass for visitors that offers access to a number of the city's best museums as well as tours and tourist services.

The Moscow Pass comes in the form of a plastic card costing 2,400 rubles and, while it only currently includes access to seven museums over three days, there are plans to expand it in the near future.

"We are offering a three-day card, but we plan to have more partners in the spring and issue a long-term card for seven to nine-day visits," said head of travel projects at the Moscow portal for travellers (WowMoscow), Ksenia Zemskova.

"The Rome Pass includes 50 museums, and I suppose that's a good figure for us to try to match."

The State History Museum, the Cathedral of St Vasily the Blessed, the Museum of the History of Corporal Punishment, the Multimedia Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary History of Russia, the Moscow War of 1812 Museum and the Museum of Russian Icons are the museums on offer at present.
