  • Very pleasant for walking the place where collected wooden houses of different peoples of the North. In many houses you can enter inside. There is free parking. Near good restaurant.

  • The Museum is good year-round. As for walks with family and friends and to visit with business partners. Here and active authentic entertainment for children and adults (especially during holidays), and coloring of the Northern architecture and the place of spiritual seclusion. One word-time will not be wasted.

  • Visited the Museum in the middle of November 2016, generally liked, but summer is still prettier. We traveled from Arkhangelsk on 104 bus from the train station, buses run frequently, approximately every half hour, fare one way-62, in a little more than an hour. The Museum is great, really enjoyed the location. Unfortunately, the Rangers in exhibits give visitors a single little information (if we compare, for example, with karel'skimi Rest), so would recommend viewing the Museum consisting of trips, will be much more interesting and phptal usage. On the territory of the Museum there are several tea houses, if you wish, you can dine in the restaurant and tourist village of Malye Korely, which is very close to the bus stop, though prices suggest.
