The Nikolay Ostrovsky state museum - humanitarian center “Overcoming” in the name of Nikolay Ostrovsky is located in the center of Moscow on Tverskaya St. Number 14.
From December 1935 till December 1936, famous writer Nikolay Ostrovsky lived here. He wrote the following novels: “How the Steel was Tempered” and “The Birth of the Storm”. He was blind and couldn’t move; however, he courageously continued his work.
On December 22, 1940, a memorial museum was opened in the Ostrovsky flat.
The great deeds of his life inspired other people who had also experienced difficulties in life. They found hope and their faith in creativity.
This museum became a real center of creative rehabilitation and spiritual rebirth for people with limited abilities. The Museum and Center carefully maintain Nikolay Ostrovsky’s memorial flat and the exhibition “Overcoming” shows the creativity of those people who have found their own place in life.
The art exhibit changes often. At times there are art exhibitions, evening concerts, poetry readings and meetings with artists, actors, musicians. The Museum and Humanitarian Center “Overcoming” at Tverskaya St. 14 is open to everyone interested in history and culture and charitable traditions.
