Access & Facilities
Access to archival materials in the various divisions requires an official letter of application endorsed by the director of the museum. The researcher should accordingly first apply to the main administrative office of the museum before proceeding to any of the divisions.
The museum library collections (ca. 460,000 vols.), dating from early imprints of the sixteenth century to the present, are held in the Book Fond (https://goslitmuz.ru/collections/363/). There are many books with dedicatory autographs and first editions. For example, the museum retains part of the library of A.I. Herzen and his family, including books with dedicatory autographs by A.I. Herzen, N.P. Ogarev, N.G. Chernyshevskii, and N.I. Turgenev.
