The message reads, in part:
“You museum is by right considered one of the main sights and a recognised cultural and educational centre of Saratov and the entire Volga Region. The museum conducts highly relevant research, exhibitions, educational and information projects, literary soirees and other interesting events. Much is being done to help the museum’s guests, especially young people, discover new pages of Russian history and literature, public and philosophical thought. This is why your meticulous, creative work aimed at preserving our invaluable cultural and intellectual heritage deserves the most sincere recognition.”
Nikolai Chernyshevsky (1828—1889), a Russian philosopher, revolutionary democrat, scholar, essayist and author, was born in the house that is part of the memorial museum. The museum’s main collection has over 28,000 depository items.
