Lev Nikolayevich Gumilev (1912-1992), the son of the great poets Anna Akhmatova and Nikolai Gumilev, went down in history as an outstanding scientist-historian, geologist, ethnologist and orientalist, also known as philosopher, writer and translator. It is Gumilev that the world owes to the creation of a passionary theory of ethnogenesis, in which the scientist represents the historical process as the interaction of developing ethnoses (peoples) with a geographical landscape and other ethnoses.
The museum-apartment of Lev Gumilyov was opened in 2004 as a branch of the Anna Akhmatova Museum in the Fountain House. Here, on Kolomenskaya street, the scientist spent the last years of his life, from 1990 to 1992. The museum retains the original furnishing of the apartment of Gumilev, his lifetime editions, a personal library and a unique archive. Also, materials on the father of the scientist-poet Nikolay Gumilev are presented here.
Regular excursions, exhibitions, literary evenings, scientific and educational events are organized in the museum space.
