The history of the present-day Vladimir Dahl Russian State Literary Museum dates back to 1921, to the establishment of two museums devoted to the heritage of the Great Russian classics: the Anton Chekhov Moscow State Museum and the Dostoyevsky Memorial Apartment.
Currently, the Museum collection consists of more than half a million items, which permitted to arrange more than ten memorial exhibitions, known not only in Russia, but also far beyond our country: F. Dostoevsky Memorial Apartment, Anton Chekhov Memorial House, A. Hertzen Memorial House, M. Lermontov Memorial House, L. Tolstoy Memorial Apartment, the Silver Age Museum, M. Prishvin Memorial House in the village of Dunino, B. Pasternak Memorial House in Peredelkino, K. Chukovsky Memorial House in Peredelkino, and the A.
