About museum

The Yekaterinburg Vladimir Vysotsky Museum 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 the Ural businessman and philanthropist Andrei Gavrilovsky. The poet’s son Nikita Vysotsky also provided considerable support in organizing the museum. Being a big fan of the Vladimir Vysotsky work, Andrei Gavrilovsky expressed his appreciation and love for the poet in famous projects. In 2006, the city sculpture was opened to Vladimir Vysotsky and Marina Vlady.

In 2011, the 54-story Vysotsky skyscraper began operations. The Vysotsky family gave official permission to assign the poet’s surname to the Ural skyscraper. The opening ceremony was attended by the poet’s son Nikita Vysotsky. Then the idea arose to create the Vysotsky Museum in Yekaterinburg.

The museum concept is unique: the milestones show the entire life of the poet and actor. The exposition was based on the personal belongings of Vladimir Vysotsky; the hotel room in which he lived while on tour in Yekaterinburg was completely restored. The Yekaterinburg Museum presents a number of exhibits that are not found anywhere in the world: these include the legendary Mercedes 350 W116, owned by Vladimir Vysotsky from 1976 onward, and the wax figure of Vladimir Vysotsky, created by sculptor Alexander Silitsky at the request of the Yekaterinburg 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 Vlady. This document is assigned the category “Cultural value of the Russian Federation”.
