In 1867 a younger son of the famous Russian poet Alexander Pushkin bought Markučiai Manor. It was two storey wooden summer house. Grigorij Pushkin’s wife Varvara's last wish was for the Manor to become a museum. Fulfilling this wish in 1940 Markučiai manor became the museum of Alexander Pushkin. The exposition introduces visitors to the poet’s life and work. In Pushkin’s corner in one of the rooms, there are a few of poet’s personal items – two armchairs and a card table.
Literary evenings, musical events and meetings are being organised in the museum. Traditionally, the anniversary of poet’s birth (6th of June) and death (10th of February) are commemorated.Back
