Nice to see a real communist exhibition, just a pity that there was no English translation, they didn't have a Spanish one either. One could observe the power behind the poster created by Mayakovsky and used by Stalin years later. It was also nice to walk around in Mayakovsky's house.

My acquaintance with this museum didn't start well. I arrived to the museum at 5.05 (it closes at 6 and the last admission is at 5pm, of which I didn't know) and was rudely stopped by two ladies at the cloakroom/reception. There was another latish visitor (an old lady) who asked them to let us in anyway reasoning that we... More

Mayakovsky is a hugely important figure during the revolutionary period of Russian culture. This museum houses a fascinating collection of original artefacts but the exhibition design threatens to detract from enjoying it. I have visited this museum before its re-design, so on returning I was somewhat taken aback. I suffer from vertigo, and I was unable to climb the scary... More

I recently visited this deeply odd museum. Whilst the displays are indeed wildly bizarre, you can't help feeling that they have been allowed to take over from some of the wonderful material on show. Original pieces of artwork and letters are often folded in half and sandwiched between pieces of shattered plexi, making them very hard to see. I couldn't... More

We had read about Mayakovsky and had seen the wonderful metro station named in his honour, one of the most beautiful in the system. So we keenly anticipated visiting this museum. It was absolutely the most imaginatively creative house-museum we encountered. From our first views of the artistic installation at the entrance we knew it was going to be special.... More

The Mayakovsky museum is well worth the 100 rubles entrance fee! They also do not charge to take photos, though you are not supposed to use a flash or photograph the icons. It is very difficult to describe the museum, but probably its structure and the unusual nature of the displays are most fascinating. It is not huge in size,... More
