Static exhibition

In 1922, there were only three rooms open for visitors: a study, a dining room and a bedroom. The number of exhibit items was 455.

One more room was opened in 1924. There were the manuscripts of Scriabin, his letters and also various event posters, concert bills and reviews. Besides there visitors could see the Becker piano, given to the Museum by M.P. Belyaev, the “light circle” (a colour-light machine, handmade by Scriabin's friend engineer A.E. Moser for the home performance of the symphonic poem Prometheus), a portrait sculpture of the composer made by sculpturer S.P. Sudbinin, a tail-coat, that was worn by Scriabin at his last concert in Petrograd on 2/15 April 1915, 13 days before his death, and some other items.

In 1928, five rooms were open for visitors: new room was dedicated to Scriabin's friends, his contemporaries, performers of his music. The sixth room opened soon afterwards.

Apart from exhiibitional work the Museum also engaged in activity connected with its holdings. Due to the efforts of Museum workers and the help of its friends by the end of 1934 the number of depository items had increased in ten times and had mounted to 5000.

During the Second World War the Museum was in the state of half-conservation. Almost all the items were evacuated, but in the study there remained pianos Becker and Bechstein (a present from Bechstein company), oak wardrobe and the portrait of the composer's mother, L.P. Scriabina, painted by her brother, artist N.P. Schetinin.

Now there are approximately 30 000 items in the holdings. There are two sections: the main holding – documets, photographs, manuscripts, editions with autographs, lifetime printed Scriabin's music editions, and the secondary one consists of большая многожанровая скрябиниана.

Nowadays the Museum consists of six rooms: an entrance hall, a study, a living room, a dining room, a nursery and a bedroom. The furnishing of the nursery hasn't remained, and at the moment there are exhibited documents concerning Scriabin's life and works. In other rooms the interior is left as it was within the lifetime of the composer. Therefore visitors coming to Scriabin's house can enter the spirit of the Silver Age.

During the excursions the guests of the Museum are given the opportunity to listen to Scriabin's music performed by himself.
