«Sholokhov-Centre»

“Sholokhov Centre” of the National M.A.Sholokhov Museum-Reserve is an area for holding large exhibition, cultural and educational projects in the Southern Federal District.

It is situated in Rostov-on-Don in an old mansion, a House of Martyn Brothers. It was built by an architect N.M.Sokolov in 1893, in the centre of the former fortress of Saint Dimitry Rostovsky (1761–1835), which was an important part of the historic territory of Rostov. The building is a bright sight of the city, a magnificent monument of the late XIX century making a historic and architectural value.

Before the October Revolution the house was in possession of the family of I.R.Martyn, a British subject, the founder of the company “John Martyn and Company”. In 1920, the building was nationalized, its exploitation resulted in a significant loss: the premises underwent redevelopment, the details of the decoration were destroyed.

In 2007, the mansion being in a dangerous condition was handed over to the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov, and in 2008–2014 it was reconstructed to recover its historic appearance.

On May, 22, 2015, in the year of the 110th anniversary of M.A.Sholokhov and the Year of Literature in Russia, there was held an opening ceremony of “Sholokhov-Centre”. The House started functioning with the exhibition “The Traces of Old Cossack Times…” from the collection of the State Hermitage, the largest museum in the world.

The multimedia hall provides an opportunity for holding lectures, museum classes, meetings and thematic events.

“Sholokhov-Centre” of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov is located in: 125/69 Bolshaya Sadovaya Street, Rostov-on-Don.
