About the Museum

The Mikhail Bulgakov State Museum was founded in March of 2007 by the Government of Moscow on Bolshaya Sadovaya Street. It became the first and only Memorial Museum of Mikhail Bulgakov in Moscow. In autumn of 1921 a young writer with his first wife, Tatiana Lappa, made his first home in Moscow in a small room of a huge communal apartment. Here, he wrote his first literary works nightly. And although he moved to another flat in the summer of 1924 the very image of the weird communal flat haunted Bulgakov and his works for many years ("Psalm", "Moonshine Lake", "No. 13 house-Elpit Rabkommuna", " Zoyka's apartment " and finally, "The Master and Margarita", the novel which immortalized the house and its inhabitants). The Mikhail Bulgakov Foundation was established in 1990 as an institution which served the purpose of making apartment No. 50 accessible to the visitors. Now the famous "odd Flat" is a museum where visitors can be transported back in time to the environment of Mikhail Bulgakov's life in Moscow.
