Kolokolnikovs Homestead is the most popular building in Tyumen. One of the Russian emperors Aleksandr the Second stayed at the manor house during his Siberian journey.
The homestead unites the history of two families – Ikonnikovs and Kolokolnikovs. The crown prince Alkesandr stayed at the house of the town mayor Ivan Ikonnikov (Respubliki st. 18) twice during his journey to Tobolosk – in May and June of 1837. Ikonnikov installed a bath tub in order to make the stay of the crown prince as comfortable as possible. Later on, he sold the house to “tea kings” – the family of Kolokolnikov.
The family built a store just nearby the house where they sold tea, sugar and other colonial goods. Nowadays there you will find out more about the history of both families, details of the crown prince visit, the interior of Marshal Blukher office who used the house as the headquarters in 1919.
The permanent exhibition “Ivan Kolokolnikov Trading House” presents the history of main stores and shops of Tyumen at the turn of the nineteenth century. You are always welcome!
