It's a very nice place to visit when you're in Moscow. They have a lot of stuff belonging to Tolstoi and his family and it's very nice to see how and where he lived and worked. It's definitely worth a visit.

Real house where Tolstoy lived with original furniture and things of that old good time, even a pair of high boots, which Tolstoy made himself. You will know the story of the family : the wife and the children.

Tolstoy's house is ample, elegant, and well-worth a visit. Especially interesting if you're familiar with his novels, but enjoyable even if you haven't read his works. Like most good historic house museums, it gives a "snap shot" view of life in a particular time period,...More

Watch the Last Station instead. Simply not something I would seek out unless I am a Tolstoy fan. I think our guide enjoyed telling us about Tolstoy, and I prefer others.
