Mayakovsky Museum

The Vladimir Mayakovsky State Museum is a Moscow Museum of Vladimir Mayakovsky, founded in 1937 on the initiative of Lily Brik as a library museum. Initially, it was in Gendrikov Lane, where the poet lived with Lilya and Osip Brik from 1926 to 1930.

In 1972, the museum was moved to a former communal apartment in Lubyansky Proyezd, where Mayakovsky committed suicide. In 1989, according to the project of the museologist Taras Polyakov, the exposition was modernized in a constructivist style. A four-story exhibition space was created according to the project of the architect A.V. Bokov, dedicated not only to the poet’s memory but also to the Russian avant-garde.
