Mikhail Bulgakov's Museum, Moscow
(4.3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Not being a fan of Bulgakov spontaneously, while on a business trip, bought tickets and unexpectedly found themselves in a regular old very atmospheric communal apartment. Almost 2:00 sitting not ordinary chairs in a small room with open mouth listened to tour guide about the life and work of this truly mystical writer. The museum itself is very small, about 100 square meters. m., but its founders have managed to recreate exactly the time at which the writer lived and worked. Highly recommend to visit the Museum and take a look a bit on the other side of the personality and life of the great writer. The apartment is very genuine and a lot of interesting things. All the walls of the entrance from the first floor of the colorful, spray-painted the stairs walking behemoth is important, and on the first floor a tiny Cafe with unusually delicious coffee and Chinese pastries fate. Personally, I plan to be back in biased apartment again. And maybe more than once)
