I wanted to go to the Gorky House and my husband didn't. I was fascinated by the amazing art deco architectural details and wanted to see for myself. He wasn't really familiar with Gorky and didn't understand why I wanted to go. However, we were...More

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

Go downstairs first ,to check your coat, then upstairs to pay and put on overshoes supplied. Most rooms have information sheets in plastic sleeves in a few languages including English. Last room up a narrow staircase would be tough for some, worth a visit to...More

This house has been frozen in time and was quite hard to find. Although it is interesting to visit I would say it is really only for those who have a love of Gorky. It is free to enter but they charge you to take...More

It was such an unexpected delight to enter Gorky's house and find his previous home frozen in time. The magnificent staircase is an architectural gem and appears to be flowing like waves. The original Art Nouveau windows are outstanding and frame the rooms beautifully. Various...More
