A wonderful small museum dedicated to Mikhail Bulgakov, designed by two theatre scenografers, recreating the time when Bulgakov wrote "White Guard" as well as stageing scenes from the novel . Also recreating his office where Bulgakov had his medical practice in the building.

I had started with The Master and Margarita and then took on everything I could lay my hands on in English, so yes, I was already a fan. I recommend the above and The Heart of a Dog as great places to start and The White Guard for insight into the upheaval of the revolution set in this very house.... More

I was very eager to visit the museum while in Kiev, we tried at first to go in and the standard older Ukrainian women who guard all the museums told us we couldn't go in without an "excursion", the excursions are only in Ukrainian, and you can't go on the excursion anyway ... We tried again the next time, today's... More

One of the most interesting historical places in Kiev. A must for literary fans of Mikhail Bulgakov. Museum is built and managed by people who love literature. English speaking guide is great.

My excursion was in the evening, when colors are more dark and there is place for mystic… Excursion was very interesting: many interesting facts about life of Bulgakov and citizen’s life. I think, this museum is “must visit” for people who is fond of “The Master and Margarita“ or history of Kiev.

I recommend to visit the tour guide. You will get a lot of unknow information about Bulgakov and how citizens leave in the beginning 20 century.

This is a perfect little museum if you're at all fond of Bulgakov's literature. It is the Bulgakov family home, and contains some original furniture, family photos, and family books. The museum is very thoughtfully designed, and I really enjoyed the English guided tour through it. I warmly recommend it if you love Bulgakov. If you've never read Bulgakov, it... More

I visited the museum a sunny Morning and got a private tour of the museum from one of the old ladies working there. I did not understand her explanations but the visit was well worth the money! Here you can see family photos of the Bulgakovs and other personal belongings owned by the famous writer. Very nice exposition, put together... More

For anybody interested in Kiev and literature the best book is probably 'The White Guard' by the Russian writing doctor Michail Bulgakow (1891 - 1940), living a part of his life in a quite grand house on the town's most attractive street Andriivskyi Uzviz, which goes steep and bending from Kiev's Old Town down to Podil near the Dnjepr.
