  • Be careful, during low season they close at 16:00 not 19:00 hrs. The place is beautiful and interesting but the main church was under renovation so the entrance was closed, the windmills were closed, and the main souvenir store was closed.
  • A must-go in Suzdal. I visited the museum in March 2017 and took many nice photos there.
  • Very interesting wooden structures. Well preserved.
  • It is ok place for localites, but certainly not worth for foreign country travellers to visit.
  • A nice open air museum of russian peasant culture and history. If you visit Suzdal take an eye also on this museum
