Dmitry Furmanov Memorial Museum was founded in 1958. It is situated in the house where the Furmanovs lived from 1891 till 1897. Here, in November 7, 1891 the author of the well-known novel "Chapayev" was born.
Up to 1995 two exhibitions were displayed in the museum: "Furmanov. Life and Creative Work" and "Literary Inheritance of Textile Land".
At present both of them are dismantled and the work to create a new exhibition is in process.
The scientific conception foresees the creation of an ethnographic exhibition which will reflect the rich history of our region. The exhibitions which have been collected since the time of the foundation of the museum will also be of great help.
The museum helps to preserve the historical and cultural monuments of the town, to organize the days of rest in historical environment, to restore different arts and crafts of the region.
The Museum is situated in the picturesque park zone with oaks, birches, and blue fir-trees around it. All this attaches the Museum its peculiar charm and uniqueness
