  • That Yes, modern, but the direction is more like Art Nouveau (French modern). What is the mosaic! What window! It's everything that I love in the architecture!

  • Difficult to see that here lived one of the most famous writers in the 30s outside. Man get an excellent insight about the life of the family Gorki and industrial family, who had heard the House before the Machterkreifung Lenin. We have booked the tour through bridge to Moscow and a very good guide. In the Museum there is an info but also in each room and each brochure in various international languages.

  • A great mansion, an interesting story on Ryabushinskys, which he built and the bitter, thanks to which everything in it. And the easiest way to go-he not only opened, but a visit to its public and free of charge.

  • A nice small and hidden museum. A good way to take a look of the house of 1930 important character of Russian literature. Even though the house was built before Gorki's arrival. The only bad thing is the lack of English or Spanish info.
  • Even though the museum is formally called "Gorky´s House", everyone knows it as "Ryabushinsky´s House" - a gorgeous building in Art-Nouveau style with amazing interiors - masterpiece of architect Fødor Schechtel. A rare example of a very beautiful and breath taking architecture but still very cozy and human-scale. Its just always a great pleasure to pass it by or visit it, thankfully to loads of discounts or free entrances that Museum offers. Truly worth visiting Хотя музей формально и называется "домом-музеем горького", по сути это конечно же дом Рябушинского, творение гениального Шехтеля. Потрясающий и уникальный дом в стиле модерн, мимо которого приятно пройти мимо и, конечно, всегда удовольствие заглянуть внутрь, благо в музее существуем большой набор скидок и льгот
  • An excellent example of art nouveau architecture.
  • Very nice place with genius details from brilliant designer and architector! I recommend it!
  • Too expensive for 15 minutes exhibition. On the other hand, architecture of the building is very interesting.
