The Ostrovsky State Museum - Humanitarian Center "Overcoming" is situated in the very center of Moscow, on the Tverskaya Street, 14. Our house is a monument of history and architecture belonging to the XVIII-XX centuries. The house was built by the great Russian architect Matvey Kazakov.
In 1824-1829, there lived the Princess Zinaida Volkonskaya. Every week she organized musical and literary evenings, which were visited by many of her famous contemporaries, including A.S. Pushkin.
In 1935-1936 in one of them lived Nikolay Alexeevich Ostrovsky, the author of "How the Steel Was Tempered" and "The Born of the Storm". The museum is a multi-cultural center. Its exhibition recreates the 200-year history of the house and recalls the Princess Volkonskaya salon. The Museum focuses on celebrating the creativity of people with restricted abilities.
