(4.3/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Really a great place for education and just for relaxing, nice and snug. was there 10 times and will walk farther

  • Museum for history buffs. Happily walked to the Museum under the open sky. Sorry on the street already was dark ... Yes and it's cold. In the summer he certainly attracts a larger number of visitors

  • Recommend to visit, but yourself. This is the case when the place is fine, but no people. In this case, without staff. All the charm of the Museum and admiration from the story guide shrink during interactive program. So far German considered rude, heckling, but he incredibly gentle and melodic than with Russians in the performance of the Kostroma leading interactive program. "Hostess houses"-Lady with an explicit profdeformaciej painfully reacted to any comment in his address, nakidyvalas' with insults on the child who dared her to kill, and spiteful person "friendly hostess" has not changed even when guests with pie was expelled from the hut. In a souvenir shop at the inlet/outlet we met her twin sister on rudeness. So if someone writes about the peculiarities of the Russian nature candidacy thesis in the north-eastern part of Central Russia-you just to Kostroma, where the cherry on the cake-the Museum of wooden architecture. 10 out of 10 for rudeness.
