Feodor Chaliapin House-Museum

In 1988 the Feodor Chaliapin House-Museum was opened in one of the few surviving 18th century estates in Moscow. Feodor Chaliapin was one of the leading opera singers of his days. He bought this estate in 1910 and it was the last place he lived in Moscow. After the Russian Revolution the house was turned into communal flats. In 1978 it was transferred to the Mikhail Glinka Central Music Museum which spent the next decade restoring the estate to how it looked when Chaliapin lived there. Also on display are personal belongings of the singer.
