Lenin House-Museum is one of the oldest museums in the city of Kazan; it was opened on November 7, 1937 to the 20th anniversary of the October Revolution in the wing of the Orlovs' house, built in 1880-ies. Maria Ilinichna and Dmitry Ilyich Ulyanovs and their cousin, N.I. Veretennikov participated in creation of the Museum. A political figure Sibgat Gafurov was an ideological inspirer.
The museum is located in the central historical part of the city. It is a typical example of the wooden urban estate of the second half of the XIX century. Ulyanovs lived in this house only 9 months, but this period was an important step of shaping his political views for V. I. Ulyanov-Lenin. Exhibition of the V.I. Lenin House-Museum includes memorial things, illustrative and documentary material, photographs, and books, revealing V.I. Ulyanov's biography and biography of his family and giving an idea of Kazan of the end of the XIX century. Memorial home furnishings are reconstituted in six rooms, which were occupied by the Ulyanovs' family.
