#3 of 39 in Museums in Irkutsk Oblast
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Highlight of a rather disappointing visit to Irkutsk. This was the most interesting and fascinating museum. A must do if in the region.
  • Quite an interesting site for those who love history or for those who wish to get acquainted with it. Beautiful views of the river Angara. But the staff is absolutely cold, it spoils the impression.

  • Great place. A few ran out of time, because under closure. Expect that all normal view, make photos-you need at least three hours. In the restaurant delicious feed. Excellent souvenirs in clay shop.

  • If you are going to visit Listvyanka or Olkhon Island, be sure to visit on the way to the Museum under the open sky-architectural-ethnographic museum Taltsy. If you're lucky with the weather, a half-day walk along the trails, go down to the Hangar. be sure to take your camera! Autumn is especially beautiful in the Museum.
