I really enjoyed this museum and it is right in the middle of Moscow near the Arbatskaya Metro stop. It is a little confusing to find because there are two buildings labelled Gogol House. The museum is the one farther from Noviy Arbat street. You...More

This was one of those places I felt wasn't a must view but was still very interesting. I wouldn't go as far as saying it was incredible but it was certainly well set out and it was one of the better house museums I saw...More

Done Pushkin, Gogol, Tolstoy and Gorky and have to say I liked this one the best so far. The rooms are beautifully restored and along the furnishing there is a little artistic touch here and there - Gogol's travelling box arranged like a carriage, portrait...More

Crowds of tourists, both local and international take
in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New
Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt
Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open
to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring
one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds
and turn to the side streets and boulevards where
calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
