Russia's oldest memorial musical museum was founded in 1894 by Modest Tchaikovsky, brother of the composer.

Pyotr Tchaikovsky had taken this house for rent in May 1892 at the magistrate Sakharov after a trip to USA as conductor of his works, which had a sensational success. Tchaikovsky was looking for a house in a secluded quiet location in the suburbs of Moscow region after tiresome touring to be able to fully devote himself to music. In February, 1885 he opted for the estate Maidanovo close to Klin town and have lived here for two years and later moved to nearby Frolovskoe. The manor house was in solitude as the composer was looking for, among forests and meadows. It was the perfect place for creativity.

"I'm loving Frolovskoye. These places around seem to me to be a heavenly Paradise."

In Frolovskoe Tchaikovsky wrote "Fifth Symphony," the ballet "Sleeping beauty", the opera "Queen of spades".  But the house was dilapidated and required money for repair, with great regret he had to leave. For a year the composer returned to Maidanovo, and then moved to Klin, to the house on the edge of town on the Moscow highway.

"I feel good at home, and I can't work so comfortable in any other place as here."

Here he wrote his famous Sixth Symphony

"In this Symphony I have invested, without exaggeration, my whole soul,"

October 16, 1893, a few days before his death, Tchaikovsky first presented it in St. Petersburg.

After the death of the composer, the house was bought by the trusted servant of Tchaikovsky, Safronov and nephew of Pyotr — Davydov, who aimed to protect the heritage of the genius musician. Later it was bought by the brother of Pyotr - Modest, it started the beginning of the museum exhibition. 

With the beginning of the World War II the museum values were moved to the birth home of Tchaikovsky in Udmurtia, in the town of Votkinsk and returned back to Klin immediately after the war. In the house of the composer an extensive library is preserved. There were books, in addition to Russian, in six languages— French, German, Italian, English, Czech and Latin. The real atmosphere of the last years of life of the great composer was recreated in the rooms of the museum.

A modern concert hall was built on the territory of the reserve in 1958, where concerts and music festivals are held. The Honorary right to play piano is devoted to famous and young pianists - winners of International contest named after Pyotr Tchaikovsky. Members of the jury, participants and guests of competitions planted Avenue of beautiful trees in the Museum Park as a sign of deep admiration of genius.

P. I. Tchaikovsky
(Pavel Egorov, Antler)
The great musical genius,
Whose writings adorn the life.
A wealth of wonderful creations,
What the soul inspires and lifts up.

The penetration of feeling and depth of emotion,
The graceful look of this fantastic game
Features of the Russian song traditions
Talented works heard.

Lifting to new heights of achievements
He's a musical art exalted,
To overcome the heavy path of doubt,
Found the answer to life the key issue.

Melody graceful paintings wrote
Masterpieces, the magnificent creation.
For contemporaries treasures created
And gave the legacy of generations.
