Schelykovo is connected with the life and creation work of the great Russian playwright Alexander Ostrovsky. The State museum-reserve "Schelykovo" includes a whole complex of monuments and unique landscapes. The main object of the museum-reserve is Ostrovsky's house. It is a wooden country house built in the early 19th century. The museum conveys the impression of the inhabited house. The house contains many playwright's and his family's personal belongings. The country park with its pavilions, bridges, benches and alleys is a nice place for a walk.

The ethnographic museum "Sobolev's house" is situated in the house of the peasant and joiner Ivan Sobolev. The Museum of Literature and Theatre offers expositions and exhibitions based on the museum collections. They represent the destiny of Ostrovsky's plays at the theatre. The Blue House was designed and built by the playwright's daughter Maria Ostrovskaya-Shatelen in 1903. Today it houses the cultural and educational centre.
