  • It's an interesting place. We were in a similar museum in Uzhgorod, but here is a completely different scale. We wandered for about 4 hours and went around only part. And adults liked the child. I was impressed by taking part in a master class on painting puffs. Firstly, the owner of this hut - Galina Sirotyuk unabashedly eats to cut off from tourists 4-5 denominations for thematic books, materials. But you don't want to take it. Secondly, when foreigners appear on the territory of the location, it spits on compatriots and makes a stand on a potential source of good earnings. A very unpleasant precipitation remained from the "guest" at her. They were sincerely pleased when the Swiss, whom she tried to load with shopping, listened to her politely, smiled and went their way.

  • I visited the museum on a Monday and was almost alone. Unfortunately , also (almost) all houses and churches were closed, so that I did not notice anything about the interior or the craftsmanship. The houses are beautiful, the (very short) explanations on the panels in Ukrainian and English. For me it was simply a nice walk in the woods with beautiful wooden houses. The "zoo" consisted of a donkey, two pigs and two storks. So because of the animals you don't have to go there :-)

  • It‘s quite here. The museum invites to have a great 2 hour walk through the forest, showing some lovely old western ukranian buildings. While i was there many of them were closed, but seems it would add a lot. Still more than worth seeing. Come here if you find the time.
  • Old wooden buildings from around Ukraine, reconstructed in a wooded village setting. Some are to look at, in other buildings you can buy locally made artifacts, have a tea/coffee and freshly made cakes - yum! We found the farm shop and had red wine and superb goat cheese. This shop also sold small goods. If you take an Uber here, beware it's system has the wrong entrance (as at July 2019).
