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.

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... More

House is in a good state, there are many things left after Chekhov family and a lot of stories are told by the guides! also very small but lovely park to stroll round the house.

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.

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... More

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.

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... More

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.

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....

Stunning garden, interesting house- well worth visiting. We went by bus feeling very brave! Tourist office gave us perfect instructions despite struggles with each others language! We walked back downhill
