Andrey Sacharov is one of the most famous dissidents in Soviet Union who dared to speak against Soviet government and its injustices against people. Father of the Russian hydrogen bomb, he couldn't be exiled from the country as it was done to other free thinkers. Instead he was sent here to Nizhny Novgorod that was known as Gorky at the time. He spent almost seven years in exile between January 1980 to December 1986. However, worldwide academician known primarily as the father of the hydrogen bomb, not the defender. The Museum is located in a residential building and occupies two apartments. One of them recreates the atmosphere of the period when there lived a scientist, is to say that it is not much different from the situation in some provincial apartments today. In another apartment there is an exposition telling about the life and work of Sakharov, mainly consisting of documents and photos. Overall, this place is not very interesting to the ordinary tourist, and to go here is only if you have a lot of time.
