At various times the luminaries of Ukrainian scene, namely I. Karpenko-Kary, P. Saksahansky, M. Sadowski. Panas Rudchenko welcomed in his hospitable house the Ukrainian intellectuals Olena Pchilka and H. Alchevska, M. Kotsyubynsky and V. Stefanyk, H. Khotkevych and V. Samiylenko, M. Starytsky and J. Romanchuk. All of them came in 1903 for the opening of the monument to Ivan Kotlyarevsky. Lesya Ukrainka, Mykola Lysenko and Maria Zankovetska touched the piano, which belonged to Panas Myrny wife. Strange sounds of this instrument, manufactured by «Kruscell», now attract visitors.
In 1938-1939 teacher of Ukrainian literature in Poltava Pedagogical Institute H.A. Nudha and P.O. Repetin initially wanted to open the museum. Compiling literary heritage of Panas Myrny was headed by son of the writer Michael Panasovych Rudchenko.
Legally and practically the same museum began to exist from the 1st of April in 1940, when funds were released for its maintenance and restoration of the house. The son of M.P. Rudchenko was the first director, he was a writer, who more than two decades (1940-1961) held this position. At the same time the exhibition was presented in only two rooms.
Hard war years interrupted creative work of researchers of the museum. The most valuable exhibits were evacuated to Ufa. Alexandra Mikhailovna (Panas Myrny’s wife) had excellent language skills in German and it helped to save house, furniture and personal belongings of the writer from destruction. Still the museum continued to work, doing the research about the creative heritage of Panas Myrny.
In 1951 in the courtyard of the estate the monument to Panas Myrny was opened (sculptor О.P. Oliynyk, architect M.K. Vronsky).
