This small, quaint museum has an amazing collection of Tolstoy's acutal manuscript pages as well as art and historical items relating to his works. It's run by a group of very kind and friendly women. It's also set away from the street, so it's very quiet, pleasant and beautiful. If you enjoy Tolstoy's writing, this place is a must-see.

Staying in Khamovniki

Neighbourhood Profile
Khamovniki could be considered a city of its own – here it’s possible to find some of Moscow’s most important cultural institutions such as the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the Novodevichy Convent and Trubetskikh Estate, great sport locations such as Luzhniki stadium and aqua complex, and long and beautiful Luzhniki embankment. Pick your preferred form of transport to explore the area – bicycle or river cruise during the summer and taxi in winter as many of the great places are situated beyond a short walk.
