State Literary Museum. Department of Open Storages in Savva Morozov's Mansion
September 19, 2015 16:03

The building at the address 1, Shelaputinsky Lane is known as Savva Morozov's Mansion and was built in the 1830-40s on the basis of chambers of the late 18th century. It is a cultural monument of federal value. During the Soviet era the mansion housed a research institute. The building was transferred to the State Literary Museum in 2010. Restoration works lasted for three years and resulted in creating a modern depositary for keeping exhibits. The open storage system provides materials available for those interested in the history of the Russian culture and literature.
Some of the premises will be accessible to visitors — five halls were equipped as of the beginning of 2015. They keep unique photos and autographs of writers, as well as audio materials.
The study room of the famous Russian singer-songwriter Alexander Vertinsky was recreated in the museum. The memorabilia exhibited there include a pipe and a hat of the poet Ivan Bunin, a dictophone of the writer Konstantin Simonov, a fabric cuff of the great classic Mikhail Bulgakov with his autograph, and many other things.
The new museum building was opened on December 26, 2014. Works on its interior facilities and beautification will be continued throughout 2015.
