Taltsy Museum, Taltsy

4.7
Explore the architectural heritage of Siberia at Taltsy Museum, an open-air display of historic wooden buildings. Stop by the outdoor park and wander among the timbered homes, log churches, and other hardy structures that were built to survive in the region's harsh climate. You'll find that many of the featured buildings date from between the 15th and 17th centuries, when the Russian empire began to expand eastward across Siberia. You can glimpse what life was like for the average person as you view the interior of each structure, including schoolhouses and barns filled with antique household items and artifacts. Stop by the museum gift shop afterward to pick up a souvenir from the region and nearby Lake Baikal. Be sure not to miss the display showing replicas of yurts and tents from the native Buryat people.

  • Long ago moved from Irkutsk, Novosibirsk and once come here to visit relatives and friends, be sure to visit the Museum! Visiting the Museum-it was and remains a tradition in our family! It is with great pleasure that every time we go, we look ... short touch to history! Thanks to everyone who keeps our history!

  • Such museums must be in each city. Talzy Museum preserves memory and protects our history. An amazing place.

  • Amazing wooden architecture, real pieces of history as well as modern art (for example great blacksmith corner with masterpieces), fresh air, conveniently located on the way from Irkutsk to Listvyanka, has tasty and reasonably priced cafe.
  • Highlight of a rather disappointing visit to Irkutsk. This was the most interesting and fascinating museum. A must do if in the region.
  • Interesting place to understand how the settlements of indigenous Siberian people of 17th to 20th centuries live.
  • Well-kept and interesting area with different old houses of Russia.
  • Good
