Dostoevsky Apartment Museum
This building was once the home of the novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky (from 1821 to 1837 where he spent his childhood before moving to St. Petersburg at the age of 16). This apartment (in the former Moscow Marinskii Hospital for the Poor) holds a few clues to Dostoyevsky's personality and beliefs. The museum was founded right after the October Revolution of 1917. Its interior still contains the original furniture, which was donated by Dostoyevsky's widow and brother in 1928. While the apartment is typical for the beginning of the 19th Century, it has unusually dark corners and wooden partitions instead of doors, befitting the brooding nature of the author's works.
