Ivan Kuskov Memorial house

Life of Totma native Ivan Aleksandrovich Kuskov (1765 - 1823) was an inseparable part of the Russian-American campaign activities for thirty years. In 1812, Ivan Kuskov founded and governed a Russian fortress in California, which went down in history as Fort Ross, now a national park in the United States. The museum was opened in 1990 in a house where Ivan Kuskov spent the last days of his life on his return back to homeland. This is the first museum of Russian America in Russia. The exposition reveals the life and work of the Totma sailor, comprises documents, letters, portraits, objects of that time.
