Literary and Memorial Museum of M. Bulgakov was founded and opened to visitors in 1989 as a branch of the Museum of the History of the City of Kyiv. House No. 13 on Andriivskyi Uzvoz was transferred to the museum. From 1906 to 1919, the family of professor of the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy Afanasy Bulgakov (father of Mykhailo Bulgakov) lived here. Bulgakov spent his youth and student life in this building. He also returned here from the front of the First World War. He worked as a doctor and received patients in this building. Here he read his first stories. It was this house that became the center of the plot of Bulgakov's first novel "The White Guard" and the play "Days of the Turbins".

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the Russian army on the territory of Ukraine, the Museum employees dismantled the main part of the memorial exposition, as well as fragments of the exposition based on the novel "The White Guard". The lion's share of the exhibits was moved to the museum storage. The museum resumed work with visitors in the summer of 2022 and operates in the mode of exhibitions related to the history of the manor and its inhabitants.

The full-scale invasion became the impetus for rethinking the place, content and role of cultural objects on the map of Kyiv, first of all those that are directly related to its culture and figures. Of course, the team of the Literary Memorial Museum of M. Bulgakov initiated a public discussion on the topic "What should a renewed museum be?" and started a series of round tables in which representatives of the professional community participate: historians, philosophers, culturologists, museum experts. These interviews can be found on the museum's website
