Taltsy Museum, Irkutsk Oblast

4.8
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.

  • Something similar to that seen in the Arkhangelsk region (Malye korely). In the Talcah monuments of Siberian architecture. Particularly impressed with the Cathedral of Ilimsk Ostrog and parochial school. The village is situated on the banks of the Angara River and it is also a special beauty-River real beauty, she is bright blue.

  • It's just fantastic! that t-podobroe I saw in the Siberian Sloboda (or somehow seem to be called vossstanovlennyj village courtyard under the Omsk). but here is the right settlement! homes are not built, they restored! whole yards. brought from different parts of the region! very nice, informative. and what there swing! in General, a place definitely worth to visit-so much so that it is on the way to Listvyanka-toward the Lake Baikal.

  • There are several wooden buildings and also the exhibits inside the building but that this would have afforded a more attractive look around the Birch featured trails

  • Highlight of a rather disappointing visit to Irkutsk. This was the most interesting and fascinating museum. A must do if in the region.
  • Interesting place to understand how the settlements of indigenous Siberian people of 17th to 20th centuries live.
  • Well-kept and interesting area with different old houses of Russia.
  • A wonderful monument of wooden architecture. Here you can come to enjoy the beauty of the old wooden buildings on the shore of Lake Baikal. Numerous exhibitions and museums. And in the summer and in the winter there are many hikers and campers. Carnival here arrange great celebration which comes as many people that neprotolknutsja

  • A great place for families. Very happy to have to visit, and this is not the first time. Thank you so much for the actors, they add atmosphere. Pin mini zoo just a miracle. The only bad impression from the toilets. The smell of the still.
