On April 26, 2019, the National M.A.Sholokhov Museum-Reserve opens an exhibition “I was Born in the Don Country…” in Volgograd, in the Historical Ethnographic and Architectural Museum-Reserve “Staraya Sarepta”.

The exhibition will tell the Volgograd residents about the life and work of the great Russian writer M.A.Sholokhov. The visitors will see personal belongings of Mikhail Alexandrovich, will learn about the history of creation and publishing of his works, about the life style of the Upper Don Cossacks early in the XX century.
