The Sergei Yesenin Museum in the capital of Uzbekistan was opened on July 10, 1981 at the initiative of Tashkent poetry lovers with the support of the state on the basis of private collections and donations from the poet’s descendants. Initially, the Museum worked as a public one, then it received the title of «People’s Museum», and since 1988 it acquired the status of a state one.
The museum’s funds contain more than 3000 exhibits, mainly related to the trip of Sergei Yesenin in 1921 to Tashkent and Samarkand.
Over the past years, the S. Yesenin Museum in Tashkent has gained significant popularity not only in the Republic of Uzbekistan, but also far beyond its borders. About 5000 visitors visit it annually.
The scientific exposition (the fourth in the history of the Museum) is located in a restored old one-story building, built at the end of the 19th century in the city district, where Tashkent residents familiar to S. Yesenin lived.
