  • Quite an interesting little Museum. Presents the history of the House itself and Stalin's time as a whole: the events of that time could not affect the tenants of the House. The Museum will be interesting for people interested in this era and fans remember Soviet times. Before visiting must see exactly where there is an entrance because walking around the House can be quite long. The Museum was visited by within the Olympiad "Museums. Parks. The farmstead ".
