Unfortunately, the house had to endure difficult times. After the death of Bryusov his widow kept the atmosphere of the memorial office, which was opened for visitors. The house itself was twice subjected to fires and was defined as “demolition”. Fortunately, by this time, the memorial collection was taken. And 1987, the building was handed over to the State Literary Museum for restoration and organization of the exposition. In 1999 the Museum was opened, which included the exposition of the Cabinet Bryusov and “Pushkin and the Silver age of Russian literature”. This decision was explained by the fact that the exposition was opened in the year of the Pushkin jubilee, and in fact each of the writers of the Silver age was not spared in his work of Pushkin’s theme.
