  • Care: interior of houses not open on Mondays and Tuesdays. This is a great museum although, when we visited in mid-May, there were not many crafts going on. The buildings have been very well restored....  more »
  • We walked here twice already. Large area, with a lot of wooden old buildings, transported from all over Ukraine. The territory is probed by regions from where the house or church is brought. Wooden churches amaze. Very competently arranged all the structures, taking into account the relief. The whole territory is harmonious and well-groomed. Walking along paths, Yaram and hills is a pleasure!!! The people are not many, peace and quiet.

  • The Museum of the Lviv region does not differ too much from those that we can find in Poland. However, it was a nice variation from the city bustle. The Open-air museum is located in the Shevchenka Grove, surrounded by trees, silence and tranquility. Museum employees add a huge charm. Some of them say even in Polish. The Pan caring for the exposure of instruments has stolen the hearts of both small and large. We recommend!

  • I recommend visiting this park if you are interested in culture and history. Traditional centuries-old houses made of wood have been collected from different regions of Ukraine and preserved here. There's also a working Orthodox Church made of wood, a children's playground, and several cages of beautiful birds. Celebrations and traditional folk games are held every Easter Monday if the weather is nice. Downsides: catering and souvenir sellers don't accept credit cards, so bring cash. I also don't recommend coming in bad weather. May be boring for young children. But in general - a great park with authentic historic Ukrainian wooden houses.
  • Amazingly large with great amount of wooden architecture, displays and a small zoo. Lies on interesting landscape making it also a nice walk.
  • Wery interesting place. Beautiful examples of traditional local arcitecture, art and vay of old days living.
  • Great open air museum with wooden architecture of western Ukraine (16-18th century Rus region of Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth)
  • Such a peaceful and quiet place, even it's closed on Mondays, you can see the village but houses will be locked down.
