It is located at the address: Nekrasova street, house 5. The building is made of local limestone and consists of three parts: three-, two- and one-story, which once had wooden superstructures-towers. The building of the Pogankin Chambers is a monument of history and culture, an object of cultural heritage of Russia of federal significance. The building was built in the 17th century by order of one of the most influential people of Pskov, the merchant Sergei Ivanovich Pogankin, and was intended both for the residence of the merchant himself with his family and servants, and for production needs. After the death of all members of the family, in the 1710s the building passed into the hands of the Rimsky-Korsakovs, from whom it was rented by the treasury for warehouses, and in 1747 it was redeemed by the treasury. The building was rebuilt as a warehouse and in the process of alteration lost the wooden residential part. At the beginning of the 20th century, the chambers were transferred to the museum of the Pskov Archaeological Society, which still operates today.
