Feodor Chaliapin House-Museum

In 1975 the Feodor Chaliapin House-Museum was opened in the apartment where the great Russian opera singer lived from 1915 to 1922. It was his last address in Russia, before leaving to live abroad. The apartment was confiscated by the Soviet state in 1927 which accused Chaliapin of aiding White émigrés in Paris, however Chaliapin's secretary Isai Dvorishin was able to save much of the furniture which was later given to the museum. As well as the interior of the apartment itself, the museum also displays many portraits of Chaliapin in his various roles. The museum is run as a branch of the State Museum of Theatrical and Musical Culture.
