Great, very interesting museum on open air. Looks a little bit alike Shevchenko Park Museum of Wooden Architecture in Lviv, but with central Ukraine specialties not Western. Really need too see

On the outskirts of Kiev, this outdoor architectural museum features homes from all around Ukraine, and from varied historical times, to give the visitor a better understanding of earlier life and times in Ukraine. Good food can be purchased on the grounds and special events frequently coincide with holidays. Be prepared for a lot of walking! This is one of... More

one of the best place in nature, every old small house are interesting to see, big nature place to spend a full day and to eat traditional food. A lot of green and nature places in Kiev and Pirogovo is one of the best. You need one bus to be there and the tickets and food are very cheap.

Here you will get a very good idea of how old villagers in the area used to live through different times. You will even how churches were. Nice place (long walk, or drive in, or by bike), and you can even have eat local cuisine at some small shops.

However, if you have more time, there are... More

There is a lot of ground to cover here. If you tend to want to see everything, liike I do, you need to be prepared for a full day. We visited on a week day and there were a few musicians performing on "folk" instruments. I think perhaps a weekend would have had more real life exhibits. I'd recommend bringing... More

As this museum is open air it makes a lot of sense to check the weather forcats before you go as rain will not be stopped by anything. On a warm and sunny day this is a perfect place for a getawaya from the hustle and bustle of the city and due to the very nice big and open area... More

It was an amazing Sunday. The museum is in a big open space. It is a big area and some of the buildings are incredible, specislly the wooden churches. We went there on a Sunday so it was very busy. Locals go there for picnics; there were stalls were to buy food mostly grilled meat and vegetables. In October the... More
