Catch the Metro to Dostoevskaya Station. Outside to Kolokonaya Ulitsa, right into Marata, and on the next corner, in what is obviously an old church, is the Arctic and Antarctic Museum.
On several levels, the places that would have once held religious paintings now have paintings of ships or explorers – there’s one of LENIN discussing some ideas with a group of other men who are probably Polar Explorers.
They have a great collection of scrimshaw.
Unfortunately, the labelling is mostly in Russian so like with most places in Russia, you will get a lot more out of it if you learn the Cyrillic alphabet.
A very interesting museum if you are interested in polar exploration.
