On the territory of modern Rybinsk there is one of the most interesting farmlands called Petrovskoe. During 2 hundred years it was a family land of noblemen Michalkovy. In this hall there are things from Petrovskoe. It tells us about living, business & hobbies of rich noblemen in 18-19 centuries. Mihalkovy collected art, they knew & appreciated it. These are paintings from farmhouse walls, & here in the cupboard is their collection: Bogem’s glasses, vases of 17th century & so on. These furniture of mahogany stood in the living room, this chandelier too. And with this icon in 17 century the oldest member of a family blessed his heir. On this paintings & fotos are members of Mihalkovy family. Many of them were famous. For example, Vladimir Sergeevich was the biggest collectioner. He had a library of rare science books, about 50 thousand issues, also a science collection of minerals, paleonthological antiquities, engravings. In a drawer of a study there was apart of his mineral collection. By his will the collection was given into Imperator’s Academy of Science.
