The people of Alexandrovsk are very proud of the Chekhov museum and the fact that Anton Chekhov wrote about Sakhalin Island. He retraced the footsteps and the conditions of the political prisoners in Communist Russia.
Anton Chekhov stayed for 3 months and wrote the book titled "Sakhalin"
We visited the museum and I only got pictures of the outside. I have borrowed a picture of the inside from this website.
look about halfway down the page for the information about his trip to Sakhalin Island.
Nice statue. Near the museum
