  • As a fan of Bulgakov i was eager to get to this museum and experience my favorite book in reality!I was not disappointed:discounts for students,incredibly friendly staff and they even had a huge black cat to represent "Begemot" from the book!Would recommend if you ever in Moscow 🤍
  • 2 museums, same address! The 1st entrance is the Bulgakov Theatre Museum, more an ode to "The Master & Margarita" book. It's very simple, signs only in Russian with Russian language tours. Walk a bit further into the courtyard to reach the actual Bulgakov House Museum (200 rubles for adults) where you walk up a graffiti coloured stairwell to visit the famous apartment #50 which inspired the same location (along with crazy characters!) in the book. I preferred the actual Bulgakov House which had personal items, family history, etc with English information.
