The literary-memorial museum of Dostoevsky was opened in 1971 in honor of the 150th anniversary of outstanding Russian writer. The house, now a museum, was the apartment of Dostoevsky, where he lived the last years of his life. Here were written by many of his works of genius, in particular, the novel "The Brothers Karamazov."

In Soviet times the house was rebuilt under a communal apartment, and that once there lived a great writer, at some time forgot. A plaque on the wall of Dostoevsky's home has appeared only in 1956. Even after twelve years began overhaul at home.

After the repair the apartment of Dostoevsky began to recover, guided by archival plans and reminiscences of contemporaries of the writer. Study of the writer was a cavity was reconstructed from photographs, made after his death. The office is a table where he worked Dostoevsky, it lies out of the boxes of medicines, pen and wallet. Above the table is kashletr intended for letters and papers. In the corner office hangs an icon of Our Lady in a silver frame. Books from the personal library of Dostoevsky, which are also stored in the office laboriously going through lists, written by his wife, who was his secretary at the same time, a stenographer, and, in modern terms, "the manager".

In addition to the memorial apartments, the museum is dedicated to Dostoevsky's life and creative activity of literary exposition. It is divided into two rooms. The first one is dedicated to the writer's biography, and the second - his major works and creativity in general. In the literary exhibition is very interesting exhibit - map "Dostoevsky's Petersburg," which marked the characters of his novels address and address of the apartment where he lived Dostoevsky himself throughout his life.

In the second hall of literary exposition in some sections recreates the atmosphere of each of the five major novels of the great writer - "The Idiot", "Crime and Punishment," "Teenager," "The Possessed" and "The Brothers Karamazov." It exhibited the books, photographs of places where the action is novel, different objects that have references to the texts, portraits of contemporaries of the writer, who became the prototypes for the main characters in his novels.

The basis of the museum's collection lay gathered Dostoevsky's grandson, Andrei Fedorovich, family heirlooms and Dostoevsky, who have long kept the grand-niece of the writer. All these exhibits were transferred to the museum as a gift.

The museum has a collection of posters and programs for performances on the works of Dostoevsky. In the cinema museum demonstrates the films made based on his works. The museum held literary gatherings and conferences, organized the exhibition.
