The State memorial architectural complex "Museum-estate of P.I. Tchaikovsky" is a unique historical and cultural monument of universal importance. Tchaikovsky admirers from every corner of the world come here to plunge into the atmosphere of genius childhood, to hear the sound of his piano "Wirth" and old-time orchestrion, to see the relics that belonged to the Tchaikovskys.
30 April, 1940, on the occasion of centenary of the composer's birth, an old mansion on the bank of the pond was named the house of the Tchaikovskys again. And it warmly opened its doors for the first visitors as in the old days when the hospitable hosts lived here. The house was twice restored. During the restoration work it got the original look of the 30-40-ies of the XIX century, the interiors of the memorial house were restored. On the 150th anniversary of Pyotr Tchaikovsky the appearance of the initial state-owned estate was completely restored. The household buildings were raised: a coach-house, stables, an ice cellar, nice summer-houses and a green-house surrounded by the orchard (there are 16 exposition objects in the territory of more than 2 hectares). In 1990 a remarkable monument to P.I. Tchaikovsky was built in front of the museum.
From the time of its foundation our museum gained much more value than just a historical monument, in fact it is double-natured. On the one hand, it is really a memorial complex. Holdings of the museum-estate of P.I. Tchaikovsky keep priceless collection of materials and artifacts. On the other hand, the museum is a place where guests are always welcome, where they can visit a variety of exhibitions, unique theatrical excursions and concerts
