The legendary circus dynasty of the Durov’s gave the world a great stellar cast of actors, one of the brightest of them was Anatoly Anatolievich Durov, animal trainer, clown, and a nephew of the dynasty founder Vladimir Leonidovich Durov. When he got back from a successful tour in the European countries, Anatoly Durov settled in Taganrog, where he lived and worked from 1926 since 1940. Among the exhibit items in the memorial house there are historical documents, photos, billposters, letters, as well as fragments of documentary movies of the 1920s showing the performances of the great artist.
