A postcard from 1974 showing Lenin’s bedroom.
The house of Lenin is now a museum in the city of Kazan. The house-museum of the Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin is one of the oldest museums in Kazan. It was opened on November 7, 1937, on the 20th anniversary of the Great October Revolution.
The Lenin family lived in this house for only 9 months, but that was the time (years of 1888 -1889) when Lenin became a Marxist and it determined his future life and destiny.
Millions of people already visited the museum during the years of its existence. Among them there are heads of other countries, ambassadors of foreign states, famous politicians, outstanding figures of culture and science, astronauts and others.
