  • His family got out of Carnival in folk architecture and rural life Museum. Arrived very quickly. Unfortunately parking was not very much, so if you are thinking, then it is advisable to leave early. Tickets are not expensive. The cost was 10 Bel. rub. for adult and 5 rubles. for the student. Happily walked around the Belarusian villages. All of the houses original, brought from different parts of Belarus. Museum staff have held games for kids and adults, together with folk ensemble we dancing around, dancing in a ring. The guys worked very professionally. Pleasantly surprised by the availability of toilets throughout. Of the disadvantages I noted a small number of catering outlets. There is a restaurant in an old Tavern, but there prices bite.

  • In fact, were going to just have a snack at the Tavern. But there did not go without a ticket to the Museum. The result was a forced tour. But, in principle, not donated. The day was clear, the territory is big. To walk well. Of course nothing new. Such museums we have lots. Probably Pancake Day will be fun in this place. Not enough zest. Yes and the tickets would be cheaper.

  • Museum of folk architecture and life "Strochitsy" we visited in the tour "a great trip to Belarus. Lucky with the weather, warm autumn denechek. It was established in the village of Lake in the year 1976, today the Museum is the only Museum in Belarus-Skansen (museums, created to preserve and showcase traditional wood construction, household items, popularization of folk culture and traditions). The exposition of the Museum is represented by three sectors that show typical features three historical and ethnographic regions: Central Belarus, Dnieper and Lakeland. These "villages" to recreate a traditional way of life of the peasants end 19-early 20 centuries. The sectors are represented as dwelling houses and outbuildings (threshing houses, stables, barns, Mills), worship (three churches and a chapel), public buildings (school, tavern, generally considered the barn). Excursion with our group included interactive elements (with traditional costumes, folk instruments, songs and fun). Ceremonial events take place here: "Kaljady", "Pshanіchny kalasok", "Беларускае vjaselle", "Kamaedzіca". The Museum restaurant belaruskaya Inn, where you can taste the best dishes of traditional Belarusian cuisine.

  • Its a bit away from the city and few buses go there (totally doable but might have to wait a while till the bus comes). The place is beautiful and much to see. Its not a loop walk so it takes couple hrs to walk all the way to the end, and come back to the entrance. Bring water and stacks so you can take a break in between ;) Condition of buildings and houses were very good!
  • It's always exciting to visit this museum. I was there with friend or family 8-10 times already. I think this museum is one of the best belarusian museums.
  • It's a very nice and mind-blowing place I have ever seen
  • Very autentic, beautiful, quiet place. Highly recommended for all ethnography lovers.
  • Amazing place to spend a weekend!!
