  • Interesting place, especially will be good with a guide, because not so many objects, the main thing-interesting to tell)))

  • The museum stretches on several hectares of the territory of Suzdal. The buildings were assembled throughout the Vladimir Region. There are quite a variety of exhibits: churches, hut, windmills, etc. The interior of peasant life was recreated in the Izbah. All went round, the son was delighted. It is a pity that the device of the mill is not available for inspection.

  • For an hour. Overall not bad. The children were interested to see the real hut:) Too bad you can't see the mill's work

  • We had a wonderful insight of village life in Russia. Well preserved houses and Guides were very helpful.
  • Really interesting place. Many examples of traditional architecture brought in from all over Russia to this unified location.
  • Great place to visit and walk around such beautiful history
  • Does what it says on the tin! A good opportunity to learn about 19th century small town Russian life. All signs are in English as well as Russian. Staff on the ticket desk were friendly, but those in the old houses could be more helpful and a little more signage about specific objects would also be beneficial.
  • I love the place and history behind the items
