  • Go, regardless of whether or not you architect. Sample of Russian Art Deco. Bitter especially nobody will bother you, though it is thanks to him, it was all saved up to 90 of the last century. Modern "bratki" managed to stick to that, even in a civil war preserved, but Mikhail now all return))) was there for a long time with a guided tour. Must be recorded in writing. Worth some small money.

  • An extraordinary home designed by Fyodor Shekhtel. left by owners after the revolution was offered by Stalin to Gorky. Spectacular Interior ceilings with carved inlays, stunning stained glass Windows, door frames, a stone staircase exceptional. Insufficient indications, it's a little hard to find her; Unfortunately, the garden is not maintained very well, the glasses are dirty and-at first glance-the House-Museum seems closed. There is a very personal one that does not seem to charge to arrange for necessary maintenance. A bit of neglect apparent.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Nice and interesting, beautiful house
  • I was impressed by the unique architecture and atmosphere of it
