Walking distance from the town center (I suggest walking over the fields), this is good for an hour or so. I have seen several of these village museums and this is not the biggest, but very interesting and not too crowded. Good souvenir stands outside.

It was a great idea to visit the museum with kids! They got a full idea of what Russia was like more than a hundred years ago. All houses and mills are not a replica, they are original. Very impressed!
