Pushkin`s Museum is situated in the house where another writer M. Bulgakov used to live. It was founded in 1999 when the poet’s 200th anniversary was celebrated. The exposition is based on the collection of Kiev Pushkin scholar Yakov Berdichevskiy. Leaving for Germany, he granted it to the city on the condition the Museum is created. The intravital edition of “Yevgeniy Onegin” is among the exhibits. It contains author signs of the poet’s friends and contemporaries – not just literary men, but also famous politicians and statesmen.
The statuette of the poet in full height, created by sculpture Aleksandr Terebenev in 1837, is also exhibited in the Museum. Its technology is unique: it consists of crushed minerals mixture called “Biscuit” Another exhibit of great value is the edition of Pushkin`s magazine “Sovremennik” with censorial approval of Krylov. Pushkin scholars believe that the poet personally held it in his hands, since according to that time practice, a copy with censorial note was sent personally to the Author and the Publisher.
