Museum of Pavel and Sergei Tretyakov opens in Muzeon

Pavel and Sergey Tretyakov's house in Golutvinsky lane has turned into a multimedia museum with unique archives.

The Tretyakov family rented this house, where the brothers lived until they were 10 and 12 years old. Then there were communal apartments. After all, it has been standing in desolation for a long time.

Restoration work began in 2015. The opening of the museum coincides with two significant dates – the 190th anniversary of Pavel Tretyakov’ birthday and the 165th anniversary of the Tretyakov Gallery.

The concept of the museum is a story about the family, Moscow merchants and the history of the collection.

You can learn more about the Tretyakov House on the two excursions run by Gorky Park: "Labyrinths of Zamoskvorechye: from Golutvinskaya Sloboda to the Einem factory” and "From Yakimanka to the Cathedral of Christ the Savior". Our tour guides will tell interesting facts about the Tretyakov dynasty and family relationships, the launch and development of their business and creation of the legendary gallery. Besides, you will find out unknown facts about the paintings and even the stories behind the plots.

All Muzeon walking tours are available here. Tickets to the Museum of Pavel and Sergei Tretyakov are available on the Tretyakov Gallery website, it is open for visitors from January 29.
