“Great museum, which gives you a good prospect of the writer himself and the time he lived through”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

I have always been keen on reeding Mikhail Bulgakov's stories and plays. Therefore, for me it was especially important to visit his museum. it gives you a good prospect on what the Revolution actually meant for people in Russia and how it affected life of different estates.

“Nice experience in Kyiv.”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

A real house where Bulgakov and his family rented several rooms during a long time. Where he wrote his first book and some others. Where he worked as a doctor after graduation.
in a very center of Kyiv in Andreevsky spusk, beatifull street full of cafes and bars with a great views to the church located tha Bulgakov's house. You can find the excursion over the house where guide can explain you all the history of this house and the family. If you don't want to take an excursion you can buy tickets without. The house is not so big but you can see the real furniture and personal things, photos of the family.
Also youcand find the tea room there where you can taste fresh tees , differents home made bakery and jams.
The museum himself and the surraundings are totally forth a visit.

“Quirky museum with pretty tearooms”
Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

Bulgakov's home is extremely pretty and interesting with lots of quirky features. Every visitor to Podil should drop by.

It is especially enjoyable for fans of the writer but I think most people will find this museum pleasant.

Unfortunately our tour was in Russian or Ukrainian (hard to know, since I speak neither), but the tourguide was very expressive and we got the gist of the tour. I understand tours are available in other languages.

The tearooms (open from midday) are quirkier than the museum and well worth a visit. The lady serving expertly decided what to serve each person and there was uniform price of 50uah each.

Attractive postcards and calendars are also available here.

“3 Week Adventure In Ukraine Mikhail Bulgakov Museum.”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Located on St. Andrews Descent. House 13. The home of Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov. Open 10-17.00hrs Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday ,Monday and Tuesday. An unusually curated and surreal museum that is well worth a visit even if you have no knowledge of the author and his works. (Which I don't) Take 30 to 60 minutes out to visit this small and different museum with several surprises that kids might enjoy too.

“Bulgakov Brilliance”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

This museum is a real gem, especially for Bulgakov lovers like myself. It is set in his house on Andriivskiy Descent or Andrew's Hill , which is in itself well worth a visit and a wander down....charming quirky historical old street, with 2 theatres, and interesting cafes, bars and little stalls selling the usual trinkets plus some retro, vintage stalls. And at the top,stands the magnificent Andrew church.
The museum is almost an art installation, and the excellent English speaking guide leads you around , through the atmospheric rooms, that have been artfully restored and help to tell Bulgakov's story imaginatively and creatively. Inspirational.
