From humble to luxurious, see the rich collection of structures at Museum of Wooden Architecture and experience Russia as it once was. Using wood as the primary building material has a long tradition in Russia, which this open-air museum preserves by displaying the authentic, furnished houses, windmills, and churches transported here from all over the Kostroma region. The woodworking technique behind some of the buildings is so advanced that they are put together without a single nail. Learn about life in Russia in past centuries, stroll through nature, and let the kids have fun in the museum’s play area.
