Our Schedule during the New Year Holidays

Dear Visitors!

Please note the following changes in our museum‘s schedule during the New Year holidays.

On December 31, 2018 and on January 1, 2, 7 and 8, 2019 the museum buidings will be closed and guided tours will not be offered. On January 3, 4, 5 and 6 we will work as usual; guided tours will be offered from 9:30 to 15:30; admission to the estate grounds - until 17:00. 

On those days, the museum buildings can be visited only with guided tours (no more than 15 people). Groups will be formed at the museum‘s ticket office (near the entrance).

Also note that on weekends and holidays, when we have more visitors than on weekdays, we may stop selling tickets for guided tours earlier than usual.

On the days when guided tours are not offered, you can see the estate on your own (admission tickets can be bought from the ticket vending machine near the entrance; cost of a ticket is 100 rubles).

Leo Tolstoy‘s Departure from Yasnaya Polyana in the Press


On the date of Leo Tolstoy‘s death, November 20th, we want to present our new special online project, Leo Tolstoy‘s Departure from Yasnaya Polyana in the Press (link to a Russian-language web site). As a rule, when refering to the writer‘s death, we use the word „departure“ meaning the events that happened from October 28 (November 10) to November 7 (November 20), 1910, after he left Yasnaya Polyana. Those 11 days truly struck the author‘s contemporaries.
