Decembrists House-Museum

Kurgan was a place of exile for thirteen Decembrists between 1830 and 1857. Particularly, Kurgan was the place of exile of Russian poet Wilhelm Kuchelbecker, close friend of Pushkin. The House-Museum of the Decembrists was created in Kurgan on December 10, 1975. It is located in the house where Decembrist M.M. Naryshkin lived in exile between 1833 and 1837. After a restoration, the house looks very much like it used to both on the outside and on the inside. The exhibition contains over 1,300 items that tell the story of the exile of Decembrists.
