About museum

The Yekaterinburg Museum of Vladimir Vysotsky was opened on January 25th, 2013, on the 75th anniversary of the birth of the famous poet, actor, and bard. The museum was created thanks to Ural businessman and philanthropist Andrei Gavrilovsky. The son of the poet, Nikita Vysotsky, also provided considerable support in organizing the museum. Being a big fan of the work of Vladimir Vysotsky, Andrey Gavrilovsky expressed his appreciation and love for the poet in famous projects. In 2006, the city sculptures to Vladimir Vysotsky and Marina Vlady were opened.

In 2011, the 54-story Vysotsky skyscraper was put into operation. The Vysotsky family gave official permission to assign the name of the poet to the Ural skyscraper. The opening ceremony was attended by the son of the poet Nikita Vysotsky. Then the idea arose to create the Vysotsky Museum in Ekaterinburg.

The concept of the museum is unique, and the milestones show the entire life of the poet and actor. The basis of the exposition includes personal belongings of Vladimir Vysotsky; the hotel room, in which he lived while on tour in Ekaterinburg, was completely restored. The Ekaterinburg Museum presents a number of exhibits that cannot be found anywhere in the world. These include the legendary Mercedes 350 W11 used by Vladimir Vysotsky starting in 1976, and the wax figure of Vladimir Vysotsky, created by sculptor Alexander Silnitsky at the request of the Ekaterinburg Museum. The most valuable exhibit is the last poem by V. Vysotsky, which he wrote a month and a half before his death and dedicated to Marina Vladi. This document has been assigned with the category “Cultural Property of the Russian Federation”.
