About museum

In 1980 I bought a poetry collection called “Yalta – My Love”. I read it. The collection became the first exhibit of the future museum. The collection began to grow steadily. Today there are more than 10,000 works of art of all genres, devoted to the beloved and beautiful city of Yalta.

Activities of the museum include: exhibitions of the museum are held on significant dates and holidays, as the permanent premises, more than 300 square metres, are very expensive. I am on the lookout for sponsors and patrons of the museum. The next opening is planned for the Day of the City of Yalta – August 1, 2023.

The museum collection now consists of more than 10,000 art exhibits. Artists, masters of applied arts, writers, poets, photographers, musicians… all with love for Yalta, about Yalta, for Yalta.

The Museum was awarded with the Diploma of Laureate in the category Culture: Public Recognition. Yalta-2006″. There are art exhibits in exposition of the museum from XIX century.
