This exhibition hall was opened in 1991 on the 100th birthday of a famous playwright, Boris Lavrenev. It’s a part of Kherson Museum of Local Lore. This place is called a house-museum because the writer lived there. After the death of Boris Andreevich, all his personal belongings, set of canvases, and antique furniture were given to the museum as valuable items.
