New Building of State Literary Museum Opened in Moscow

The State Literary Museum has been settled in a renovated building of the early 19th century in the Shelaputinsky Lane.

      It was constructed on the base of chambers of the late 18th century for Savva Morozov. This historical object is cultural heritage site of federal value. The building was closed for repair works for the last three years.

      Earlier the State Literary Museum had no building of its own and was located in the premises of the High Monastery of St Peter in Petrovka. It had to vacate the halls and give tenure to the Russian orthodox church.

      With the support of Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin the museum was ascribed two buildings to. The second building is located in Zubovsky Boulevard and needs restoration works that are expected to be started next year.

      Gilyarovsky Museum, the new building of the GULAG History Museum, and the Museum of Russian Estates as a branch of the Glazunov Gallery are planned to be opened in 2015.
