Dobrolyubov Literary Museum
This is the only Russian museum dedicated to the life and oeuvre of Nikolai Dobrolyubov (1836—1861), a prominent publicist and literary critic. Being a free-thinking, gifted, independent and open-minded person, Dobrolyubov was a game changer of his epoch, though he graced the life with his presence only for a short time – he died at the age of 25. Two buildings of the Dobrolyubovs’ mansion host the museum. The exhibition is logically divided into two parts: in the outhouse, there is a memorial part that displays Dobrolyubov’s childhood, youth, family and relationships; in the rental house there is a historic and literary exposition; besides, various concerts, workshops, and tea parties take place there as well.
