You may visit this place for fun, the only nice wooden church there at the entrance but it's half burned and newly build. It's really not so special If you still go there try make a picture near the running mill, that's fun

Interesting wooden architecture including a summer and a winter church onsite and houses of peasants and the middle class which showcased the lives of people living in the olden days. The ground is beautiful as well.

Nice place to walk from jne house to another and see beaitiful wooden construccions: houses, mills, wells, a church. All of them have been brought from the neighborhood of Suzdal and Vladimir. That gives us a good knowledge about the way of life of our grandfathers. The collection is full of folk masterpieces.

Some woden houses gathered from the district and earned by some way a UN certificate. Quite disappointing by size and average content. Only one house showing local rural way of living. Much less attractive than other preserved "villages" like in Ireland or in Norway.Not a "MUST" site to visit and spare you time here.

What a lovely way to spent a few hrs wandering around this lovely little reconstructed wooden village of the last century, and getting a peek into their daily lives

It really worths a visit, especially the church inside it. Loved the old mills and other cottages. It's very turning back time.

We had a local Soviet-style guide take us through Suzdal, and this was one of our stops. I really enjoyed hearing about how folks lived in this area hundreds of years ago (and until recently as well). The wooden buildings and windmills were very charming, and they even had some folks dressed in period clothing at some of the buildings.... More

A snapshot of early life in Russia and a quick peek in to their homes, churches and small town lifestyle.

This is a near-perfect attraction. Located in an elevated area of Suzdal, a short walk from most hotels in the center of the town, this is a clean, quiet place where the care dedicated to it is evident. The museum includes many attractions, from simple things like a well and some peasant houses to more elaborate attractions such as the... More

This is a so-called “open-air museum”, had two pine-wooden churches, Transfiguration Church built in 1756 and moved here in 1960’s and Resurrection Church built in 1776 brought here from elsewhere. The museum also displayed log houses, windmills, barns, tools and handicrafts illuminating Russia peasant life in the old time(not necessarily “good”). It’s a pleasant experience to us, particularly when we... More
