National Museum-Estate of N. Pirogov is located in a picturesque park on the shore of the lake (south-western outskirts of the city). Prominent surgeon bought the estate in 1859. He lived and worked there until his death in 1881.

Museum and memorial cabinet of the father of military field surgery are open in the manor house. You can also see a pharmacy-museum with the interiors of reception and operating rooms. Church-mausoleum with the embalmed body of Pirogov is located nearby.

My experience, Explo description: 

Nikolai Pirogov (1810 – 1881) is undoubtedly Vinnytsa’s most famous citizen. Pirogov is famous for many advancements in modern medicine, most notably utilization of the first modern field medicine during the Crimean War and the use of ether in developing safe anesthesia for surgery patients. He spent his retirement years in the Vishenka region of the city, where he ran a free clinic on his estate. His home is now a museum open to the public, with exhibits on his lifetime achievements. His study remains intact, and you may also view actual instruments Pirogov used during surgery. Note the painting in the hallway depicting an intimate concert in Pirogov’s home given by his contemporary in the region, Pytor Tchykovski.

How getting there: 

Taxi to the museum is approximately 10 hrv. Alternatively, you can take Tram #6 to Vishenka and walk to the museum.
