  • Came to the Museum by car, some difficulties arose with the navigation-there are pointers. to Have booklets with buildings, but it is better to take the tour, conducted by researcher (I think 10.5 BYB). Much of course depends on the weather, since a large part of the exhibition is under the open sky. I liked the Museum. On the territory of the Museum there is a tavern, where you can eat and get warm.

  • Few local knows about this museum. If you go by public transport (bus 170je) of Robins, be ready, that local even not tell in what direction to go. The Museum is wonderful, staff-fans for their cause. The Museum virtually no advertising. Bud'et ready, that you'll be alone in it. PS If you are there, the first thing to go into the tavern, make your order and walk through the Museum further. Cook slow!

  • I'd advise only. 5 rubles entry fee, whether you're coming in. As soon as you enter the restaurant you dine from your order because it takes approximately one hour. It's a great chance to observe hiking and Slavic lifestyle
