After visiting the Red Square it os good to feel the atmosphere of Kitay Gorod, walk dawn Varvarka Street, visiting the sobors and the Romanov Chambers. Be aware of the stairs and low ceilings. You will see the furniture and you can read about habits of boyars.

This is a totally delightful museum. It's the home of Michael Romanov, the first Romanov, whose rooms are decorated as they were in Michael's time -- complete with one of the first forks to be used in Russia. The dining room, study and library, men's and children's bedrooms. Upstairs is the women's living room and bed chambers -- with furniture... More

This is my 12th visit to Moscow and I'm cheesed-off with myself for having not been here a lot earlier! This is a lovely museum. It won't leave you stunned and gaping like the Kremlin will, but it has a lot of atmosphere and gives you a taste of the architecture and interior decor from the 1500-1600's, both of which... More

Not much to see,, very moisture building and small inside. The history about The house of Romanov Boyar as we can see all the stuff clearly shown. And it has a connected with The kremlin history as well. So you must go to The Kremlin "State of Museum Historical". Good Luck!!

Loved this museum for several reasons. It was a great window into the lives of the Romanovs (the last Tsars) when they were Boyars (aristocrats and bureaucrats). It's well set up so that you really get a sense of what the daily life was for the wealthy and powerful. I especially enjoyed the women's floor, apparently women spent their days... More

Home once used by Romanov family. Delightful. Almost empty when we were there. Rooms from 17th century. Family pictures. Some narrow steep stairs, so it is not for everybody.

I discovered this museum accidentally when walking from metro station Kitay Gorod towards Red Square. It's kind of hidden, because you hawe to go down some stairs, but it shouldn't be too hard to find it, because I'm pretty sure there's a sign on the sidewalk next to the stairs. It is a very interesting sight. First you enter a... More

This place is like a hidden jem - it is situated on Varvarka Street, 2 min from St. Basil Cathedral and Red Square, but not a lot of people are aware of it. If you want to feel an atmosphere of old Russian house - you need to go there, paintings on the walls, old wood furniture, everything is full... More

This is a little jewel, relatively hidden from the street. You have to go down the stairs, next to a church. Inexpensive, not at all crowded, you feel as if you are stepping back straight into the 17th century. It's not a big museum, but it's packed with interesting things and lots of atmosphere. Not far at all from red... More
