The wooden house of Peter I in the Kolomenskoye Museum-Reserve, a cultural heritage site of federal significance, will be repaired. The project documentation has already been agreed upon. On June 3, the exhibition closed in the building, and renovations will begin there in July. The work will be carried out at the expense of the city budget on behalf of the Moscow Mayor.

“Restorers will have to clear the wooden surface of the facade walls from dirt, treat them with special compounds, repair the wooden porch, and put the roof in order. In the interiors, the floors will be carefully dismantled, rotten wooden elements under the internal walls of the log house will be replaced, the surfaces of wooden walls, beams, ceilings, floors and architectural elements such as door and window frames, benches will be cleared of dirt,” said the head of the capital’s Department of Cultural Heritage

Alexey Emelyanov.

The house of Peter I is located on Andropov Avenue (house 39, building 12). This one-story wooden building is the only memorial museum in Moscow dedicated to the Tsar-Reformer. Russian carpenters and Dutch shipwrights built a house especially for Peter I at the mouth of the Northern Dvina in 1702. The emperor lived there for more than two months in anticipation of the repeated siege of Arkhangelsk. Then the building was moved inside the Novodvinsk fortress and rebuilt several times. In 1877 she ended up in Arkhangelsk.

By 1932, the house had become dilapidated, so it was going to be demolished, but thanks to the efforts of the first director of the museum in Kolomenskoye, Pyotr Baranovsky, it was saved and transported to Moscow in 1934.

In 1964, and then in 1978, the building was restored. Work was also carried out in 2007–2008. After the last full-scale scientific restoration, its museum exhibition was also updated.

In the house of Peter I there was an exhibition “Builder, swimmer, hero”, which included authentic objects of the 16th–17th centuries. Visitors could visit the emperor’s dining room, office and resting room and learn how European traditions influenced the life of the royal entourage and the entire Russian society.
