Mikhail Bulgakov's Museum, Moscow

(180+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
Visit the strange world that surrounded and influenced one of Russia's most famous 20th-century writers at Mikhail Bulgakov's Museum. Situated on the fourth floor of the communal apartment block where Bulgakov had a room after coming to Moscow, the museum melds the authentic atmosphere of the time with the supernatural scenery of his novels, most notably "The Master and Margarita," where the writer immortalized his quarters as "The Odd Flat." The museum is furnished and decorated to take you back to the time when the writer lived there, featuring various personal belongings as well as those of family and contemporaries. The museum regularly organizes theater performances of Bulgakov's plays, novels, and stories. The ground floor of the same building features another museum dedicated to Bulgakov as well, so consider combining the two for the full experience. Mikhail Bulgakov's Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Moscow Edition.

  • The Museum of personal belongings not much, about 40 total, as they say, the main exhibition is in Kyiv on andreevskiy spusk, 13, i. e. in the House where the writer was born. When the writer arrived in Moscow, nobody expected it here, there is no place to live, a few nights spent with friends and in random places. Room on the garden he helped n. k. Krupskaya. But the room was in a terrible state, rain leaked, and then formed a terrible mold. Indeed, "bad apartment.

  • Everything from porch, finishing rooms apartments overwhelmed. While going to the apartment, the mystical approach mesmerizing drawings on its walls. The apartment is very nice passes all the essence of the era in which Mikhail Bulgakov lived. Liked the cat, who is said to live and does not come out of the apartment. Special thanks for organizing expositions with the plan of the apartments in the yard. Overall, a very interesting and informative tour. Recommend to visit everyone.

  • Small but very cozy museum about the writer Bulgakov. There is also a theater and movie theater on the premises. There are a lot of events like lectures and concerts, checking in advance if English translation is possible is a must. There is also an option to do a midnight tour of Moscow visiting the places mentioned in Master and Margareta which is very much worth the effort.
  • Here you can see the typewriter of Stalin's critical civilian, who also wrote his favourite play. And some more exhibits to remember the Master.
  • Superb museum. If you like Bulgakov and have read Master and Margarita you should definitely visit. It does a fine job in recreating the magic atmosphere of the book.
  • Музей классный и экскурсовод интересный
  • If you want to get in the Russian culture, you can't miss this small apartment, close to Mayakovskij Square. Not far from the magic area of the Artist's inspirational loci.
