If you are in Kiev and want to spare a few hours out-of-this-world experience, you must visit Pirogovo Museum. It is a great place to experience Ukranian rural life. Different houses from different regions are scattered thru a huge area. There are wooden churhes, schools, blacksmith shop, carpenter shop. You can talk to the old lady in her garden taking... More

The area is great to spend time to see history of Ukraine. It is good for summer season as for me. The area is huge to walk.

A beautiful open-air museum. Prepare to spend an entire day - there is a lot to see and it is all worth seeing. There are traditional Ukrainian homes and churches from nearly every region of Ukraine. It almost feels like you are visiting the country several hundred years ago - and it is all conveniently brought together in one location.

I went to the Pirogovo Cultural park and it is a wonderful place. Make sure you dress appropriately for the weather as you will be in for a long hike. The government has collected very old churches, windmills, cottages, grist mills and various other buildings from all over the country and brought them to this place. Many of the buildings... More

I went with a friend this morning to the Pirohovo Open-Air Museum and we both loved the experience. Being a history, art, and architecture enthusiast, I loved that I could see a well-preserved collection of traditional Ukrainian buildings in multiple styles. We made the decision to hire a guide as we entered the grounds. I highly recommend that you do... More

Very interesting tour. I went on a cold day, but the tour was still great. My tour was arranged by JC Tours and Olga was my guide. Olga was excellent. She was the guide for the rest of the city tour and she knew the details about all of the attractions including the outdoor Museum. It is worth eating at... More

The weather was cold, there was no sun but i saw all colors of nature in this village. You can experience and see, how old ukranian people lives and where to stay. I suggest pick a sunny day and enjoy all the field.

Inexpensive entry after a short drive from Kiev. There's a lot of walking, but the atmosphere and history lessons are worth every step.
