The museum is a tribute to Actor Vassilievich Samoilov (1812-1887), whose private life is closely connected with his creative work.

For eighteen years (1869-1887) the second floor of #8 on Stremiannaya Ul. was occupied by the famous actor of Alexandrinsky Theatre. He was the most gifted representative of the Samoilov dynasty, many members of which were well-known theatre people.

Two of the museum halls are fully devoted to the history of the Samoilov family. Here there are portraits of the three generations of the dynasty, their personal belongings, furniture, paintings, expertly made by V.V.Samoilov himself.

A large portrait hall narrates the story of the artistic surrounding of the family, the history of the Imperial Theatres in St.Petersburg of the 19th early 20th century. Besides the portraits here there are articles connected with the theatrical life of the 19th century, personal belongings of the brilliant actors of Alexandrinsky Theatre.

A small concert hall revives the musical traditions of the Samoilov house, where regular musical soirees were held. Among the guests there were A.Dargomyzhsky, A.Rubinstein, L.Auer. Nowadays chamber music concerts and other events take place here.
