Boris Pasternak Memorial Museum (May 2013)

The Boris Pasternak Memorial Museum was opened in 1990 in the house where the famous Russian writer Boris Pasternak lived from 1941 to 1941 when he, along with other writers, were evacuated to Chistopol during the Second World War. On the second floor of the small museum there are three halls: two memorial rooms and one literary room. The memorial rooms depict the rooms as they looked when Pasternak lived there, one of them is the landlord's room and the other Pasternak's own room. Next to these is the literary room which displays information, documents and photographs of the 'Doctor Zhivago' author, especially focusing on his time in Chistopol.
