Tolstoy House Museum Reviews & Ratings
Tolstoy’s House Museum is a rural charm in the centre of Moscow city. The wooden house and backyards tells the story about the life of Tolstoy's family. His passion was making leather boots . You can see two pairs of boots that he made at the museum. You can also see the chess board with writer Maxim Gorky he used to play. His great works "War and Peace", "Anna Karenina", and "Resurrection" were born here.
House of the great leo Tolstoy
Very good shape small 2 floors wooden house. Nothing to touch, but you can answer questions and get answers if lucky.
What a priceless cultural treasure, just sitting there waiting for you to visit! It is much more than just Tolstoy’s house. It’s the epicentre of many interconnected lives and stories. Stand in the dining room and think of Rachmaninov playing that exact piano, you know, whatever he was working on at the time. And then Prokofiev. Portraits of the Tolstoy family by my favourite Russian artists, think of their paths entwining. Tolstoy’s wife, in her own right a writer, photographer, and interesting artist, who gave it up to be his support...his interesting daughters and their own journeys...there is so much here and you will see his books differently afterward.
The house in Moscow in which Leo Tolstoy stayed with his family for 20 years from 1882.
