Sightseeing guided tour

Our guides acquaint Museum visitors with the memorial and typological objects thus involving them into a sort of co-creation. Accordingly, visitors have a chance to discover the poetic world of the old Russian estate, with its facilities and a steady-going tiresome rural life.

Sites for visiting:

  • The main house where the family of the writer lived.

  • Outbuilding – kitchen

  • Exhibition "Ambulatoriya" ("Ambulatory clinic").

  • External tour over of the outbuilding (or Guest House/Lodge), where Anton Chekhov wrote his famous play "The Seagull".

Romantic Melikhovo estate felt the presence of characters from the works of Anton Pavlovich. Here, in a romantic Melikhovo estate, one can have a feeling of actual presence of Chekhov's characters. And sometimes poetic images of Anton Pavlovich arise in the shadow of old trees, among colorful flower beds, on the "Walk of Love" and "Levitanov Hill" as well as mirrored ones by the pond "Aquarium".
