This building was the home of famous Soviet writer Maxim Gorky from 1931 until his death in 1936. The house was built at the beginning of the 20th century and can be considered a masterpiece of Moscow Style Moderne. This is one of a few places where you can still see an original luxurious interior. Gorky was a prominent supporter of the revolution and despite revulsion at Bolshevik revolution he later became the Soviet Union's leading writer. Despite this, he later fell within the deadly orbit of Stalin's disapproval. The museum exhibitions illustrate Gorky's family history and his life and work under Soviet rule. One of the exhibitions presents more than 200 Japanese ivory and wooden miniatures collected by Gorky.
