  • House-Museum of A.n. Ostrovsky is a branch Museum of the theatre named after a.a. Bakhrushin. Two-storey house 19 century-one of the few remaining wooden houses in Moscow. Wood is the second floor, the first stone. Future great playwright, plays which are still valid today and steadily put in theaters of Moscow and all Russia, was born in this House and lived in it for up to three years. In Moscow there were several (not less than 5) houses related to the family, but the House A.n. Ostrovsky in Malaya Ordynka Street is the only surviving. When, in 1984, opened a Museum in the House on 1 floor were recreated Memorial room of parents and living room and 2 floor devoted to the works of the writer. They reflect the life of heroes of plays by Aleksandr Ostrovsky: Larissa from the Bespridannicy, merchants, Nobles and officials. In the rooms presented Interior objects on the walls hung posters and old photographs of actors, encompass heroes Ostrowski on stage. Also on 2 floor presents photographs from the family archives of the writer, his personal belongings, items belonging to the Maly Theatre actors. Another 2 floor you can see the layout of the Small Theater of the year 1840, layouts and sketches of scenery, albums with photographs of actors. We examined the Museum without a guide, but keeper 2 floors kindly told us many interesting facts. Tickets cost 200 rubles, photography-100 USD.

  • Unfortunately the inside did not hit-was cleaning day. Had to be content with inspection of the buildings from the outside, and the monument to the great playwright. Amazing that in addition to the building where he lived, survived a big pridvorovaâ. Around the House stand more cramped.
