  • This open air museum is out of the way for most tourists, but it's worth the trip if you're in the area. It's my understanding that this buildings here are in the traditional local style. The structures are all made exclusively from wood, and the design and craftsmanship are remarkable. We also saw some traditional local dancing in one of the buildings during our visit.
  • The location is very good for rest in favourable weather. There are places for a light lunch outdoors and closed cafes. That is not liked. For people with disabilities-kaljasochnikov the Museum is absolutely not ready. The stroller is absolutely impossible to get to the second part of the Museum, but also on first must make a lot of physical effort to get around the tracks. In the House there is no opportunity to hit. Museum management think there is room for improvement. Therefore, until a hard threesome

  • The air is crisp. Delightful nature. Very nicely. Very interesting wooden buildings. All personnel in traditional costumes performed, very polite. Free clean toilets. Price per ticket inexpensive, for Russian citizens on weekdays, 200 p. The Bell Tower, where you can hear the Bell ringing and ride horses. Previously held in a small wedding ceremony Korelah, all oochen liked the reality surpassed expectations. In small Korelah can make chic unique photos. Really enjoyed that in small Korelah you can forge itself a souvenir coin. Nowhere before this.

  • The Museum as a whole. But the contents unsatisfactory. All maintenance, decay. There was a similar Museum in Irkutsk (Talzy). The heavens and the Earth. There and contains buildings better and stay different, and where there are fine to eat. Toilets are normal, but not dirty plastic booths. Visit Malye Korely stands. The Museum shows the actual home of the northerners.
