Take the audio guide, it's definitely worth it. Dostoevsky's life was fraught with suffering and certainly wasn't dull. I found it intriguing to learn of his trials and tribulations. The rooms are lovingly recreated and the photos are very evocative.

No, the entrance fee is 200 rubles (nearly 3 euro) for foreign citizens. You can also buy an audio guide for 250 rubles (3,5 euro). So, yes, I would say it's almost free :)
