We toured this museum with a visiting Russian literature lover. Although we have read a few works of this author in translation, for most non-native Russian speakers who have only a passing knowledge of the works, it might be just too detailed. The guide spoke with enthusiasm and great knowledge. Our friend was very impressed. The apartment where Bulgakov lived has been restored in an interesting way, but it is probably not on the top 10 list for the average foreign tourist to visit.

Bulgakov is my favourite author and it is a great honour for me to be in his house. It is very important to get deep in to the magic of this building and you must take a tour with a guide. Actually I've never been in a museum where you getting involved in almost a theatrical action-tour. Very unique place!

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.

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!
