  • I liked this museum a lot as it contained old rural houses and buildings from all over lviv. It is a little way out of lviv so you have to catch the bus- the museum is not that well sign posted so it....  more »

  • It‘s quite here. The museum invites to have a great 2 hour walk through the forest, showing some lovely old western ukranian buildings. While i was there many of them were closed, but seems it would add a lot. Still more than worth seeing. Come here if you find the time.
  • Old wooden buildings from around Ukraine, reconstructed in a wooded village setting. Some are to look at, in other buildings you can buy locally made artifacts, have a tea/coffee and freshly made cakes - yum! We found the farm shop and had red wine and superb goat cheese. This shop also sold small goods. If you take an Uber here, beware it's system has the wrong entrance (as at July 2019).
  • I really enjoyed the place. Perfect for 2-3 hours walk. However the exhibitions inside the buildings are disappointing. No idea to present the history of Ukrainian regions, or to present traditions and culture of Ukrainian rural areas.
  • Great place. Secluded, quiet, and authentic. It is wonder that you can find such green area right to the downtown.
  • 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.
