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 Irkutsk travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Irkutsk holiday planner.

  • 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!

  • An interesting open-air museum where displayed samples of wooden architecture. On a stroll worth found at least three hours. We've had a little time as sincerely sorry, and if you take a guide, so perhaps the whole day, and in general you can spend.
