Gilyarovsky Preobrazhensky Hospital History Museum
Gilyarovsky Psychiatric Hospital No. 3 was Moscow’s very first psychiatric hospital. The main building was designed by Moscow provincial architect I. A. Selekhova to accommodate 80 patients, and first started treatments in 1808. In 1838, the hospital’s name adopted “Preobrazhensky” by Imperial Edict, and in 1978 started being known as Gilyarovsky Preobrazhensky Hospital in honor of distinguished Russian psychiatrist V. A. Gilyarovsky, who wrote about the hospital:
“The Preobrazhensky Hospital embodies the living forms, faces and facts of domestic psychiatry.”
The museum first opened on the hospital’s 160th anniversary thanks to public support and donations. Its collections span the hospital’s history, and were in large part acquired from hospital staff working under medical directors M. A. Dzhagarove and A. B. Aleksandrovsky. The museum’s collection explores milestones in the hospital’s development, and the accomplishments of its medical directors and prominent researchers throughout the years. More than 1,000 items span the personal records of pre-revolutionary psychiatrists, the hospital’s archives, and a photo archive.
The museum offers two tours: the history of pre-revolutionary psychiatry, and the history of the hospital.
