Leo Tolstoy house museum in Khamovniki, guided tour
Tolstoy Museum - the writer lived in this house for almost twenty years, from 1882 to 1901.
The house was refurbished and furnished on his own instructions, so visiting the museum will paint a full picture about the lives of Leo Tolstoy and his family, as well as his tastes, habits, and traditions.
This is most definitely a biographical museum, at the same time inextricably linked to Tolstoy and dedicated to his creative works.
Unlike many other museums that have been artificially set up, everything here is original and authentic.
