     Alexander Nikolaevich Ostrovsky (1823-1886) is a Russian playwright whose work became an important step in the development of Russian national theatre and an associate member of the Academy of Sciences in St.Petersburg.
   The museum was opened in 1984 in a house where the playwright was born. The house is located in Zamoskorechii where the coziness of everyday life is preserved. Around Ostrovsky`s country estate there is a big garden which blooms since early spring till late autumn. Rooms in the wooden house and mild dull light only add up to the atmosphere of calmness, tranquility and peace.
