The museum is located in a wooden one-story building with mezzanine. The house was built in the late XVIII century and belonged to the landlord Lvov. Earlier it was located in the village Slepnevo, Bezhetsk county. One of the owner of the house was A.I. Gumileva, mother of a poet N.S. Gumilev, who, since 1908, had repeatedly traveled to Slepnevo, and from 1911 to 1917 brought his wife here, a poet A.A. Akhmatova. In this house, the childhood of their son - a well-known historian, L.N. Gumilev - went by.
The fate of this house is also associated with the presence here of the artist D.D. Bushen, poet and artist E.Y. Kuzmina-Karavaeva. After the revolution of 1917 the Gumilevs left the village and moved to Bezhetsk.
After the revolution of the empty house in Slepnevo was used for different household needs, and the village gradually disappeared. In 1935 the house was moved to the village Gradnitsy, and it became a school. In 1987 the school was moved to a new building. Memorial House was released. In 1989, the 100th anniversary of A.A. Akhmatova, there was opened exposition at 4 rooms of the mezzanine.
