  • Very enjoyable to visit the Skansen of Ukraine. Lovely old style houses and wooden church. Also the paths and gardens are arranged in an old style.

  • The day we went was really spectacular. So great to be hanging out in an open air museum on such a great day. There's a lot of walking. The directions/map are not very helpful. Highly recommend...

  • If you interested in getting to know better the country you are visiting, its history and traditions, then this is the place for you. We had a fantastic tour with a group of my British colleagues...

  • Nice outdoor Park, but not enough signage to explain various objects. A nice place to try Ukrainian dishes outdoors. Also nice seeing craftsmen with their products (not the souvenir stalls)
  • Портал в минуле. The real time machine. The portal to the past of Ukrainian people. Worth visiting with guided tours as it helps to hear the true stories of the things.
  • Beautiful place. Lovely ambiance. Well maintained. Make sure you have enough time to savor the experience. I had 5 hours and I felt it's not enough. The food at the food court was delicious.
  • I realize how rich Ukrainian history and Heritage is I feel proud that I was worn in such a amazing strong History
  • One of the best outdoor museum which will show different outfits of nature in different seasons until now I have visited it 3 times in different weather like recently I have visited it in spring and posting one of the pictures we took
