“Love this place”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Bulgakov museum is one of my favorite ones. The museum is rather small, and it takes us back to the times of the Russian civil war and tells us a story of the Turbin family. It seems that you really feel the spirit of that time and the atmosphere of sadness and hope in the Turbin family. It is definitely worth visiting, don't forget to book a guided tour. The guides are excellent.

“Interesting museum/ tearoom”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

We had an English speaking guide who was quite informative and enthusiastic. Bulgakov's house reflects the man's life and character. A fascinating look at Kiev during the tumultuous years of the early twentieth century.

We were able to reserve a tour in English by showing up at the museum where we were given a time for the following day.

After the tour we walked behind to the back of the house for tea, apple cake and jam for a very low price. There was a nice choice of teas served by a delightful woman who enjoyed practicing her English with us. A well spent afternoon!

“A museum in Bugakov's house”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

This museum in actually inside Bulgakov's house, which is quite nice. We didn't get to go inside because it was already closed, but looked like a wonderful museum by reading the other reviews...

“A step back to Bulgarkov's time.”
Reviewed 29 April 2013 via mobile

St Andrew's descent is an amazing street of traditional & historical buildings, some of which are museums, others are cafes, restaurants & bars. We had planned to visit this museum as the write up in our guide made it sound interesting. A home where the author actually lived, is as if, he was still alive & had gone out for the afternoon. The rooms all connected into each other, there was the furniture, fixings & original manuscripts from the author. We just went through the rooms ourselves with no guide and managed to find & understand the captions and found the experience well worth it.
