The Museum of Wooden Architecture and Peasant Life
The Museum of Wooden Architecture and Peasant Life Suzdal Reviews
The highlight of Suzdal Aug 09, 2007
Russia mainly has religious sites such as churches, cathedrals and convents to offer, so anything interesting for travelers that is different from this is worth visiting, even if it’s just for diversions sake. I truly enjoyed walking around this open-air museum that illustrates old peasant life from this region in Russia. There are log houses, windmills, a barn and lots of displays of tools and handicrafts. The museum also contains the wooden Transfiguration Church from 1756 and the wooden Resurrection Church form 1776 (It’s impossible to completely escape from any church while in Russia…)
What we enjoy most while walking around in this museum are the employers that are dressed up in traditional clothing, they are the first Russians we see that are able to smile, and the musicians that play traditional music.
