Feeling the history
May 2017 • Friends
I like very much Chekhov house where he spent last period of his life. One can feel how he was living and writing in this nice house with a private garden. I believe it is good opportunity for visitors to spend minimum half an hour in this location

Nice small museum with a pretty garden.

Everything kept clean and neat, Chekhov's interiors unchanged, garden is a nice place to read a book. Oh by the way, bought there an amusing book with receipts from Chekhov's grandma.

Lovely Hostesses Make this Worth the Trip!
Jun 2013 • Solo
My favorite part of the Chekhov House & Museum was touring the actual White Dacha, which is full of the ubiquitous Ukraine "Museum Ladies," who will give you a personal tour of each room. I was graced by several unique hostesses who made my visit extremely colorful and memorable. Chekhov's garden is a tad overgrown, but it just gives an air of still-aliveness, and the dacha itself is in wonderful condition. Stop by and live some history while you're here in Yalta!

Nice visit to Chekhov's datcha
Jul 2013 • Friends
Very happy to visit Chekhov's datcha in Yalta. The house and the garden are very well maintained, with genuine conservation (it is basically how it was). Unfortunately not all rooms are opened for visit.
The museum has a vast collection of pictures and interesting movie in English.

Small, interesting, helps to be a Chekhov fan
Aug 2013 • Couples
Chekhov lived with his family in this house for only about four years. It is interesting to get some glimpse of this famous man's lifestyle, especially juxtaposed with seeing the palaces. The garden is a delight. However, there is not a lot of history to be learned there, no docents to educate you, so if you're a fan then it is a place to go, otherwise I would not spend my time there.

Charming visit for Chekhov fans
Aug 2013 • Friends
Smal and intimate in pretty gardens. In original state as if family just walked out. The local ladies who oversee the rooms were very sweet despite no English and tried to convey as much to us as possible. Guies in English in each room were helpful.

An enchanting place and a beautiful song recital in the museum
Jul 2013 • Friends
The house is set in a beautiful garden which was created by Chekhov himself. The house is small and unpretentious but must have been quite comfortable. You can visit all the rooms as well as the kitchen which was in a separate building at the back.
There is a (modern building) museum which displays a lot of objects and photos from Chekhov's life.
We were fortunate to be on tour which had arranged a local songs recital in the museum.

If you enjoy Chekhov's work, this is a must
Aug 2013 • Couples
A lovely quiet place, Chekhov's dacha was preserved by his sister in his memory.

If you are a Russian speaker there seems to be an extensive display, but as tourists we were sent straight to the house where we were the only visitors and able to soak up the atmosphere.

Loved it!
Jul 2013 • Friends
This was one of the top three things we saw in Ukraine. We are all interested in literature and we even reread some of Chekhov's plays before our trip, but in addition to that, this place was extremely well maintained, and we felt that the docents (who spoke NO English at all, by the way) were happy to have us. Most importantly, they gave us small notebooks printed in English that explained each room. It was just a lovely place with a wonderful atmosphere. There is also a short film in English.

We went from the port to the house by taxi, a cultural experience in itself. I can say with certainty that I will NEVER drive in Yalta. One other note about the taxi: We didn't intend for the driver to wait for us, but he insisted (and didn't speak English), so we ended up paying him more, but he did indeed wait for us. We agreed on one hour and that was just right. Other friends had the same experience. We were with someone who had a little trouble with walking and it would have been a LONG walk back to the port.
