Nikolai Gogol House-Museum

Nikolai Gogol House-Museum (July 2013)

The Nikolai Gogol House-Museum is both a memorial museum and a scientific library dedicated to the author. It is the only surviving house in Moscow where Gogol actually lived; he moved here in 1848 and later died here in 1852. It was here that Gogol wrote 'Dead Souls' and subsequently burned the second part of it in the house's fireplace. The memorial museum displays personal belongings of the author with each room featuring on a particular item and involving the use of video and sound special effects.  The final hall is decorated with characters from Gogol's stories and has touch screens displaying illustrations inspired by Gogol's work and information on Moscow of Gogol's time.  Admission  to the museum is free on the third Sunday of the month.
