  • Place mandatory for people fascinated by the works of Mikhail Bulgakov. The Museum is small, but contains a few interesting exhibits, which are discussed in an interesting way by the Guide. Tour takes about 30 minutes.

  • Very interesting tour of his house. After visiting I have the urge to read Michail Bulagkovs books
  • I love that museum. Take group excursion through the mansion and order tea on the backyard terrace.
  • Extortionate museum, but will be rather interesting for those who like Bugakov and his "Belaya gvardia" in particular. They offer night tours as well.
  • You are lucky if you get a good guide. This place is all about your guide knowledge and performance skills
  • The museum gives an insight on the place where famous novelist M. Bulgakov lived. Does not have a lot of original stuff. Organized like a performance mixing the real life of the novelist and his books.
