    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. The exhibition "Overcoming" is dedicated to them. Artistic expositions, music and literary soirees often take place here
