(500 reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
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.

  • Really like it...you can see how people live before (house and conditions), have possibility to make photo in costums, on little river or lake- you can try yourself floating in wooden boat  more »
  • Really worth to have a visit there if u r interested with Russian historical architecture. But definitely you must have a tour guide as it far from town. I think it's better if u come during spring.  more »
