Ostrovsky Estate-Museum ‘Schelykovo’ information
Alexander Ostrovsky is the 19th-century playwright who is often considered to be Russia’s greatest realist writer. This museum is devoted to his life and work. It is a tribute to Ostrovsky’s work for the Maly Theatre, which he founded, and also covers the area of Zamoskvorechie, where he lived and loved. Some of the writer’s personal effects are on display here. More intriguing are the paintings and engravings of old Moscow, which featured so prominently in Ostrovsky’s work.
