Gogol HouseFree: All time

Nikolai Gogol, the 19th-century Ukrainian-born writer, wrote in Russian and spent his final years in Moscow. The Gogol House was where he resided of his last years until his death on February 21, 1852. Today it is home to Russia’s only museum dedicated to the author as a memorial and research library. In this small museum, visitors can see the fireplace where Gogol burnt his manuscript of his famous novel “Dead Souls.” The reading room contains a library of Gogol’s work and other reference materials about him. In the courtyard is the statue of Nikolai Gogol himself.
