The estate was built  by Alexey Olenin, the president of the Academy of Arts at the beginning of the 19th century. Alexander Pushkin and Mikhail Glinka, Pyotr Vyazemsky and Vassily Zhukovsky were frequent guests here. The museum organizers carefully preserve evidences of a unique page in the history of Russian culture from the 1820s.
Alexey Nikolaevich Olenin enjoyed the reputation of a well-rounded person. He served as the president of the Arts Academy, the first director of the Public Library, and a member of the State Council. He was not only an art connoisseur, but cared about and supported writers, poets, artists and musicians.
Priyutino was frequented by lots of famous figures of Russian art and culture. It became the abode of exalted imaginative atmosphere of respectful and intellectual communication that was free from affectedness and hypocrisy. In different years Vassily Zhukovsky, Alexander Pushkin, Mikhail Glinka, Karl Bryullov, and the Decembrists Volkonsky, Trubetskoy, and Muravyev-Apostol gathered here. Alexander Pushkin inspired by the beauty of Olenin's daughter Anna wrote one of the famous masteprieces of his love poetry.
The hosts were very fond of the theater. New plays and stage productions were enthusiastically discussed there. Besides, performances of private theatricals were staged in the estate. The Olenins' family members as well as well-known actors of that time were engaged in the plays.
