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

I really liked this one. It's outside the city in the countryside. It wasn't really difficult to find but the entire park is spread out over a number of acres. So a lot of walking is necessary here!

The place is good for visits during the local events or exhibitions, when you can try some really Ukrainian food and drinks in the really old Ukrainian surroundings.

Large territory, prepare to walk at least several hours, or rent-a-bike (near entrance of Museum). Take water especially during hot summer! Inside you will find dozens of Ukrainian traditional houses, churches, mills, other types of estate, brought or rebuilt from different regions of the country. There are several small restaurants and cafe along the route, also you are allowed to... More

The Pirogovo open air museum is a nice place to spend a sunny afternoon if you like looking at village life reconstructions, houses with thatch, carved lintels, roof wardens, and all that sort of thing. Most places have such museums, and they are an always-interesting view into how a country views its pre- and early industrial history. This one is... More
