Pushkin Country House museum

The Pushkin Country House Museum was opened in 1958 in Pushkin in a one-storied wooden country house which has preserved its original architectural shape up to our days. It was built in 1827 by V. Gornostayev and belonged to A. Kitayeva, the widow of the First Gentleman of the Bedchamber. Pushkin rented eight rooms in Kitayeva’s house from May till September 1831 to enjoy his first summer of family life with his young wife Natalia. There Pushkin met with his friends including Nikolay Gogol and Vasily Zhukovsky, discussed literature and politics, entertained his relatives, walked in the Catherine park and Tsarskoe Selo environs. Museum interiors, recreated according to the memories of Pushkin’s contemporaries, and materials exhibited in the rooms feature the poet’s life and work at that time.
