Literary-Memorial Museum of M.T. Rylsky
The museum is dedicated to Maksym Tadeyovych Rylsky, a famous Ukrainian poet, artist and publicist. The museum exposition is located in his house in Holosiiv, Kyiv. This two-story house, in which the poet lived the last 13 years of his life from 1951 to 1964, was built according to his design. He created his masterpieces here, such as "Roses and Grapes", "Winter Notes" and "Evening Conversations". A bust of the poet was installed near the house after the opening of the museum. There is also a garden near house and flower beds planted by Maxim Rylsky himself.
The museum was opened to the first visitors in the summer of 1968. During more than 40 years of the museum's existence, more than a million people have visited it. The exposition of the museum was changed, supplemented and adjusted three times: during its creation (1968), in 1985 and in 2006.
The museum's collection contains a large number of manuscripts, the poet's personal library, including books signed by the authors, as well as things that were associated with the writer during his lifetime, including hunting equipment. Among the museum's special treasures are manuscripts of Maksym Rylskyi's works, his correspondence, works of fine art, film and photo documents.
