  • Stunning Museum! It collected at home, as well as outbuildings (barns, mills, etc.) from different regions of Arkhangelsk region. Plunge into the world of northern villages. Here is the House of the fisherman: network and some hooks and any other that he needed. And here's a House Hunter: traps, guns such guns SOS. What absolutely incredible kind Mills! Wells! Amazing beauty at home-yards! Huge, wooden, heated by the Sun, inside they are completely amazing smell, such a light and pleasant air that wants to stay in them live. I recommend to visit! Will never regret if you visit there. And children, true to bypass, have to walk a lot. Better to go for the whole day.

  • Место нам очень понравилось. Провели там пол дня, не смотря на то, что была зима и было не очень тепло. Было очень интересно посмотреть постройки из разных уголков края, посмотреть отличия и особенности в зависимости от местности, где селились люди. Зима добавила своей изюминки - деревья все были с белыми шапками на ветках, как в сказке "Морозко". Мы ходили не с гидом, а использовали электронную версию. Было удобно, так как можно двигаться в нужном тебе темпе. На территории есть кафе, но в новогодние праздники там было очень много посетителей, потому мы поехали в город. Также на территории музея обустроены места для отдыха, с лавочками и столиками, так что если вы все продумали заранее и захватили с собой термосы и перекусить, чего мы не сделали и жаль, вы сможете удобно расположиться. В музее проводятся разные мастер-классы и активности, что будет интересно детям.
  • Those who couldn't get the opportunity to play with snow, it is like a heaven... I am from southern part of India, and enjoyed it well...
  • Beautiful place
  • 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.
