Volunteer Weekend at Yasnaya Polyana

On June 16-17, volunteers from the National Society of Monument Preservation (Moscow) worked at Yasnaya Polyana, as part of our Museum Volunteer Camp project. Seven volunteers worked in the Old Abramovskaya Grove. They gathered tree branches that remained after sanitation cuttings, and also burned 2.4 cubic meters of waste wood. We thank all the volunteers of the group and hope that they managed not only to work, but also enjoy the wonderful nature of the Yasnaya Polyana estate! See the photos >>>

Dear Visitors,

Please, note that on July 1 our museum will close one hour earlier than it usually does on weekend; the museum will be open from 9:00 to 17:00, the last guided tour will begin at 15:30.

During the high tourist season we will follow the summer schedule: visitors can enter the estate grounds until 20:00 by tickets purchased from the ticket vending machine near the entrance.  

Please note that on weekends and holidays, when we have more visitors than on weekdays, we may stop selling tickets for guided tours earlier than usual. Admission to the museum buildings during the high season is possible only with a guided tour, which is why we recommend that our visitors arrive during the first half of the day.
