    The memorial house-museum of the sculptor is situated in the building of the former sculpture school which was founded by Opekushin brothers Alexander and Konstantin. The museum was opened in 1988 in Rybnitsy village of the Yaroslavl region. This is the motherland of the sculptor A.M. Opekushin where he was born in a serfs family in 1838. It was here where he died poor and forgotten in 1923 and was buried at a local cemetery. During his creative life he erected monuments in Moscow to A.S. Pushkin, Alexander II, Alexander III, and Katherine II. Besides Opekushin's monuments can be found in St. Petersburg, Pyatigorsk, Tartu, Habarovsk, and others. Opekushins motherland is a historic and cultural place in the Yaroslavl region. In the beginning of the 20th century the sculptors brother K.M. Opekushin bought a two-storyed house in Rybnitsy village at his own expense. Then he gave the building to the local school for sculpture classes.
