  • To the southern end of the town, this is a must to see if you visit Suzdal. An interesting collection of buildings , including 2 churches - one of which you can go inside, and a number of farms , wind...  more »
  • There are wooden buildings here gathered together from the local area and formed into a settlement. Check out life as a peasant.  more »
  • The problem is most objects are closed, you are not allowed to get in. No information outside, so there is nothing to do here without a guide or being well read on subject.  more »

  • 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
