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.

  • Though visited this place in winter, but still experiences weight. Accessible from Irkutsk is not at all difficult, minibus station or central market toward Listvyanka for 100 USD. The input ticket-250r., for beneficiaries-$ 4.95 That all bypass slowly-take 2-2, 5:00, if you go down to the Hangars-one should add at least 30 minutes. You can take with you and have a snack, although the food on site is sold. Examples of housing from tunguskih to nomad camps inside Russian villages and Buryat tents. Especially the detail shows the everyday life of Russian countryside. Log cabins, barns, school, County Office, a chapel, a church and a jail. Struck German manual washing machine, which enjoyed a Siberian peasant! All very interesting, I did a bunch of photos. If there is a possibility-be sure to come here in the summer.

  • It was a trip of "new year's Eve at Lake Baikal. I have the memory of a beautiful day in this open-air museum. January 4 was a day of celebration because the Russians were celebrating their Christmas. It is made up of over 40 historical-architectural monuments and 9000 pieces of great historical value. It was very interesting. Visit to advise.

  • This Park traces life in an ancient Russian village. Really worth the visit, houses in wood and other tricks are really beautiful. To do!
