Mikhail Bulgakov's Museum, Moscow

(4.3/5 based on 170 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.

  • A visit to this museum has become for me a continuous pleasure. Very interesting touch to create one of the most beloved writers. Of course, I am very familiar with his many works by the great playwright. His whole life is shrouded in various myths. Recreated in the apartment when he lived here. Here you can even see how looked revision of the legendary newspaper "Hooter".  Very nice, drawing on his work with the guides, told many interesting facts previously unknown to me. The place definitely impress those interested in the legacy of Mikhail Marynich.

  • Very interesting and mysterious place, generally the whole lane seems to me mystical ... climbing the stairs up to the Museum, feeling that now the writer himself would come out from the other world to meet you. I really was scared! But interesting! all recommend a visit.

  • The visit to the Museum and the House of Mikhail Bulgakov (they are one next to the other) is definitely fun. I visited just after the mansion of Tolstoy and I must admit that between the two experiences I preferred the latter. The apartment where Bulgakov spent three years of his life and conceived his masterpiece, the master and Margarita, is especially interesting for the author's original manuscripts, the desk and the designs inspired by his novel that you will find on the walls, eye-shaped with irony. For the rest it seems a place arranged just for sightseeing and lacking in authenticity.
