About museum

The House-Museum of Yelets lace and Moscow artist Pavel Vasilevich Bludnov invite guests at any time of the year, on any day, and at any time. There are both group and individual tours of the museum. If you want to come and see the exhibition, you just need to call the specified phone numbers.

There are dozens of panels, tablecloths, dresses, blouses, and other items woven by Yelets lace makers at different times on the two floors of the museum. Next to modern works, old ones are also presented, complementing each other. All items are made by hand lace makers and are made in the famous Yelets style, which even an unenlightened visitor can easily notice. This lace amazes visitors with its beauty, elegance, and uniqueness.

There is a collection of paintings by the Moscow artist Pavel Borisovich Bludnov, who had lived and worked in Yelets for the last 20 years of his life, on the first and second floors of the museum.. He was a member of the Artists Union of the USSR and a permanent participant in all-Union, Republican, and numerous foreign exhibitions.
