This is a lovely place to walk around and spend the day. Lots to see and do. It's huge, so plan to spend several hours. You can also rent bikes and peddle around. Friendly staff and great authentic food. Worth the drive.

Getting to the Pirogovo Open-Air Museum is somewhat challenging when using public transportation. I do not recall the Metro stop where I got on bus, and the bus dropped us off at a road marked with small sign ("Pirogovo") and arrow showing direction to walk, which was at least a quarter mile. It was nice to get out of Kiev... More

This was really interesting look into Ukrainian culture. We came with a guide and that really helped us make the most of our visit. It was a little disappointing because some of the buildings were closed. Theres a fun area to get Ukrainian food and drinks for lunch. Be prepared to walk a lot (bring good shoes, maybe a hat,...

Park includes buildings from all over Ukraine to visit. Our favorite was the schoolhouse and the stave church. Also a great place to see artists, buy souvenirs and have a great lunch.

You will need more than three hours to walk this huge park. There is so much to see and explore. The different sections are really interesting and educational. And according to my Ukrainian friends the houses is what they recall of their grandmothers' village. there are bikes available for rent as well if you do not want the 10km (?)... More

Bikes recommended as it is a generous area, the houses are pretty far away from each other, nice architecture history of Ukraine. Yet the staff need to be more customer oriented and helpful, more information, especially in English is required, you don't get to learn much :(

definitely recommend spending the time to explore this entire complex of buildings and history. truly amazing what they have done and the living aspect of this whole experience, recommend a guide for this as you will learn so much more than just nosing around on your own

Large area filled with traditional houses of Ukraine, and several old windmills. Great to see: an old wooden church (in Northern part of the park). Sadly, when I was in Oct 2014, many houses were closed, so you can enter only a few houses.

This is a huge open air folk museum with houses and windmills transported from all over Ukraine. It is huge. Be prepared to walk all day if you want to see everything. What made the museum for us, wasn't the buildings, wonderful though they were, it was the lovely local people in national dress who act as guides or make... More
