Aleksander Scryabin Memorial Museum

Aleksander Scryabin Memorial Museum (July 2013)

This memorial museum was founded in 1922 in the house where the famous Russian composer Aleksandr Scryabin (also transliterated as Alexander Scriabin) lived from 1912 until his death in 1915 and the museum's first director was Scriabin's widow. The interior of the house has been retained as it was when Scriabin lived here, complete with his personal belongings including a device he had created to combine music notes and coloured lights as Scryabin was before his time in wanting to give the audience a wider experience beyond just hearing the music.  When Scryabin moved in he only took out a three-year lease on the apartment as if he knew he would not any live longer.  Admission to the museum is free on the third Sunday of the month.
