  • 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
  • Guided tour makes it all meaningful and valuable
  • 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.
  • if you loved the book, a must visit.
