About the Museum

Gogol House on Nikitsky Boulevard is the only place in Moscow that keeps the memory of the last years of Nikolai Gogol alive. In this house, the writer worked on the second volume of Dead Souls. He burnt the manuscripts of the poem there. And in this very house, on February 21 of 1852 the writer died. Today it is home to Russia's only museum of Nikolai Gogol, the State-Funded Cultural Institution “Gogol House — Memorial Museum and Research Library.” It is located in the very centre of Moscow, near the Arbat Square, in an old city mansion, with its history dating back to the 17th century. Gogol House combines a research library of over 250,000 volumes, a research centre, an exhibition hall, and a memorial museum. The museum also regularly holds theatrical meetings, concerts, literature and philosophy workshops as well as tours and lectures.
