Tariverdiev was presented by things from his creative and personal life. The first exposition of the Museum of movie (costumes, items of props, posters), second – photos and memorabilia from the family archives: the archives of musical scores, home chair, a telescope and sky map. Tariverdiev was keen on (there is an international competition of organists named. Tariverdiev), photography and astronomy, and achieved great heights. Perhaps personal belongings will be the basis of the Museum-apartment of Mikael Tariverdiev (he lived on the street Usievicha in Moscow), if the hassle of Vera in this direction will be crowned with success. Such plans are available.
