Opened on March 27 in Moscow Museum "Gogol's House" will increase due to the additional wings. About it reports "Interfax" with reference to Sergey Khudyakov, the head of the Department of culture under the government of Moscow.RIA Novosti also writes about the expansion of the Museum, citing the same official, however, quoted Khudyakova otherwise: "After a while, unfortunately, not as fast as wanted, to the memorial Museum of Gogol will join the library room of the writer, which is also located in the mansion on Nikitsky Boulevard. And the library itself will occupy space in the building opposite the House of Gogol"."Gogol's house" is located in the mansion's Thick on Nikitsky Boulevard: this house the writer spent his last years (1848-1852). Since 1971, this building is the municipal library, where staff in 1974, opened a memorial room". Since 2005 the library received the name "Gogol's House", and in 2008 began the design of the Museum by the artist Leontius Ozernikova. He himself in an interview with Izvestia called the exposition "conditional", because in the Museum collection are very few original items belonging to the writer.In the future, the Museum and library will have to split up: the Museum will remain 7a in the house on Nikitsky Boulevard, and the Museum will move to the building across the street - building 7, write "Izvestia". The delay in moving is that building 7 is a construction company, which has not yet expired lease. Described by "Izvestia", the situation is the same as what he was talking about April 1, 2009, the day of the bicentennial Gogol, Sergei Khudyakov (see quote from RIA Novosti above).Organized in the capital of the Gogol Museum is the only Museum in Russia.
