Museum-reserve P.I. Tchaikovsky

The last years of his life Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky – by that time already a well-known and accomplished composer – spent in Klin near Moscow and its environs. In this quiet place not far from Moscow, he rested from the tour and worked actively, creating his best works. First, he rented a house in Maidanov, then in the village of Frolovskoye. The last refuge of Tchaikovsky was a house on the outskirts of Klin. It was here that a year after the death of the composer, his brother opened museum.

Everything in the house remained as it was during the composer’s lifetime – a piano, a sideboard with souvenirs and gifts, a bookcase. The special value of the museum collection is the composer’s manuscripts, notes and letters, archives of Tchaikovsky’s relatives and friends.
