The Tolstoy House Will Be Closed Due to Preparation to the Summer Season

Dear Visitors,

Preparation for the winter and summer seasons is part and parcel of the museum‘s work. We close the Tolstoy House to visitors twice a year in order to be able to carry out maintenance  work in it. It is done to ensure the preservation of the authentic interiors and objects and to make it more convenient for tourists to visit the House. Our task is to preserve the House as it was in Leo Tolstoy‘s lifetime.

Thank you for your understanding!
