The Municipal Museum was created in 1998 and inherited to the Popular Embankment House Museum. It is dedicated to the social history of 1930ies - 1940ies, to the lifestyle and daily activities of the Soviet elite: major Soviet scientists, writers, journalists as well as Government members and Party leaders. Such figures as Sergey Alliluyev and Vassily Stalin, Nikita Khruschov and Georgy Zhukov, Jury Trifonov and Antoly Rybakov lived in the House. The exhibitions recall tragic events of the so-called Stalin's Purges (Repressions of the 1930ies - 1940ies) when near 8000 inhabitants were repressed and more than 300 were executed. Nowadays museum plays role of one of the cultural and literary centres of Moscow.
Talently reflected in Jury Trifonov's novel "The House on the Embankment" the epoque of 1930ies - 1940ies attracts great attention of readers, journalists and historians in Russia and all over the World
