The house is very small and you don't need more then 15-20 minutes to spend inside it, especially if you're not speaking Russian, but still has some memorable peaces from the history of Bulgakov's life.

We wanted to see something unusual in Moscow, and our guide suggested us to go there. You have to go upstairs without elevator, but it was worth to do it. Inside there are many odd exhibits, if you are familiar with this novel of Bulgakov, everything will be interesting for you, if not, still you will be curious to see... More

Its not a bad museum, very small and not so great if you don't speak Russian although they do supply you with an English guide kinda thing (folder with some information). The staff were very nice and made the experience more enjoyable.

The primary redeeming factor of the entire experience was that my short visit was felt like somthing Bulgakov himself would have written. First, the museum is somewhat difficult to... More

Here you can order an excursion, drink tea, take a tram (or bus) tour (on some mystical places)), that tours can be held at night )), and of course you can buy Bulgakov's books. So the place is worth of visiting.

Magic atmosphere, real furnishing, and there is a cafe in the building, offering a wide range of russian tea. At the entrance is the statue of Koroviev and Azazelo, quite the same as in the book.

There are two competing house-museums in the same courtyard, one is near the arch, the other one is further in, inside an apartment where the writer rented a room for a while. Both museums offer recreations and evocations of historic interiors and some artefacts from the era. Bulgakov's House at the arch has a number of rooms where an assortment... More
