We enjoyed our visit to this excellent Modernisme Style (Art Nouveau) house. Tucked away in a residential neighborhood near Tverskoy Blv it is well worth making the effort to see. Loved the staircase! It really felt like a home, not just a Museum. Helpful guides...More

Truth be told, as a museum this doesn't have much going for it; however, as an example of Art Nouveau, Russian style, it shouldn't be missed. The staircase is exceptional. The rooms are of interest albeit not terribly well cared for. The hidden chapel in...More

The Gorky house (or Ryubashinsky mansion) is worth a visit even for those who are not admirers of Gorky's writing. It is a fine example of an art nouveau house, beautifully preserved, which feels as if one is moving underwater, with curving, flowing carving and...More

It's interesting, I wouldn't mind guessing that the majority a foreigners who visit here come for the architecture rather than any great interest in the writer. The thing is though that clearly the authority's view is that this is a museum about Gorky first and...More
