The Chicherins were known for their cultural traditions. Besides his main diplomatic activity, Georgy Chicherin himself was good at music.
A maid welcomes guests at the entrance to the museum. She will be your guide around the house and to the bygone era. True miracles are going to happen in the house! Little Sonya and Yura will tell their guests how they used to celebrate Christmas in the 19th century. And a brownie, the keeper of the Chicherins’ household, will tell you the history of the holiday. Walking from one room to another, guests will learn the stories of the family that used to own this house.
A special place of the Chicherins’ house is its Blue room. It was used as a dining room, a home theatre, and a Christmas tree room. Here, stage scenery and theatrical costumes were made, scripts were written, shows were rehearsed, a Christmas tree was decorated. It is that room where that special festive atmosphere reigns during Christmas and New Year holidays.
Recreating the family traditions, the museum offers themed staged tours in the Russian and French languages during the winter holidays. Museum-goers get to know the history of the Chicherin noble family and their traditions of New Year and Christmas celebration. Children will enjoy master-classes of Christmas tree decoration making and shadow theatre.
Prior registration is required to have a holiday tour around the museum.
