Ivan Goncharov Museum Opens in Ulyanovsk

On Monday, June 18, the historical and memorial museum of the outstanding Russian writer Ivan Goncharov (1812-1871) has been opened in Ulyanovsk.
      The opening of the center is timed to the celebrations of the 200th anniversary since the writers birth, which is marked from June 16 to June 21.
      The museum is located in Goncharov's House - a three-storeyed mansion in Goncharov Street in the the city center. It is the house where the writer was born. The building has been restored for the festivities.
      The new museum will become a branch of the Regional Art Museum headed by Julia Volodina. According to her, the branch should be considered a public multipurpose center rather than just a museum; a Goncharov research center with a library will be opened in it, and various expositions will be held there.
