About a century ago, intellectuals gathered at Voloshin’s house to socialize, relax and be inspired by fresh impressions. Guests come here in search of peace and solitude, escaping the hustle and bustle of city life, in search of like-minded people who are able to understand their inner feelings.

White, M. Gorky, Bryusov, M. Bulgakov, A. Green, S. Efron, Tsvietáieva, Gumilev, Ilya Ehrenburg, Zoshchenko, Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin and other famous artists, Who came from big cities like Moscow and St. Petersburg to find peace and rest.

Every year thousands of tourists come here, fans of poetry or just those people eager to admire the ancient interiors and enter the spirit of the Silver Age.

Voloshin house-museum is played by the widow of the poet, MS Voloshina, who during the most difficult historical conditions, she was able to save not only the interiors of the rooms, but also the files that belong to the poet, his documents and the library. With these files the base of the collection was formed.
