Taltsy Museum, Irkutsk Oblast
(4.7/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Explore the architectural heritage of Siberia at Taltsy Museum, an open-air display of historic wooden buildings. Stop by the outdoor park and wander among the timbered homes, log churches, and other hardy structures that were built to survive in the region's harsh climate. You'll find that many of the featured buildings date from between the 15th and 17th centuries, when the Russian empire began to expand eastward across Siberia. You can glimpse what life was like for the average person as you view the interior of each structure, including schoolhouses and barns filled with antique household items and artifacts. Stop by the museum gift shop afterward to pick up a souvenir from the region and nearby Lake Baikal. Be sure not to miss the display showing replicas of yurts and tents from the native Buryat people. Add Taltsy Museum to your Listvyanka travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Listvyanka holiday planner.

  • Nice and informative. They say this is the best Museum in Russia such plan. I probably agree with that. An entire village-exhibit. The children really enjoyed walking along the streets and peek into homes, nooks and crannies. basement-particularly impressed) you can ride horses, swing on a swing, walk on stilts. And after a bite to eat in the restaurant.
