We were in Kiev for Eurovision, but I also was keen to see the city. Having just finished The Master and Margarita, I was excited to go to Bulgakov's house in Kiev, and I am so glad I did. Our tour guide (Olga) was lovely, so friendly, spoke perfect English, and knew everything there was to know about Bulgakov. You... More

If you love Bulgakov's works as much as I do, this is a must. Well-preserved, quiet house, very authentic with a lot of original pieces of furniture. I did not have a guided tour but a lady who works there provided me some explanations. I immediately wanted to re-read the 'White Guard' as the house is well-depicted in that book.

Discovered this place by chance when wandering around. If you have read 'Master and Margarita' then it is a must.

This house, where the writer really lived, is furnished and organised according to his books, that were inspired by it, ina suggestive white colour. To can ask for a tour by the gentle Olga or her colleagues who will love chatting on this author and his relations with Gogol' or Pasternak. This all presupposes you read him first!

The house is very interestingly packed with personal memorabilia from one of the greatest writer of the 20th century. A must see for all the Bulgakov lovers

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.
