Anna Akhmatova Literary and Memorial Museum

Categories / Science. Education/Museums

ANNA AKHMATOVA LITERARY AND MEMORIAL MUSEUM, located at 34 Fontanka River Embankment, was opened in 1989 in Fountain House (see Sheremetev Palace) as a branch of the Dostoevsky Literary and Memorial Museum. The museum became independent in 1990. A. A. Akhmatova lived in the northern garden wing of the Fountain House in 1918-20, and lived in the southern wing from the middle of the 1920s until February 1952. The exposition, opened at the former flat of research assistant of the Russian Museum art historian N. N. Punin, is devoted to the life and creative work of Akhmatova. Little known portraits of the poetess and her contemporaries, books from her library, autographs of Silver Age poets and memorial items are all displayed. The decor of Punin's study and Akhmatova's room has been reconstructed. The treasury of the museum contains a collection of rare editions from the collection of M. S. Lesman and books from the library of I. A. Brodsky. Literary and music soirees, scientific conferences, exhibitions of contemporary artists are regularly held in the lecture-exhibition room. The museum receives 25,000 visitors annually.
