  • Trap for tourist . Absolutely NOT INTERESTING. Usually racist: no reduction for disabled people. So much staff that is only intent on chatting: for which there is no unemployment ... a way to demonstrate the workmanship of the people
  • Quite interesting, to understand peasant life in old Russia. But only 3-4 houses showing real exhibition, the rest is not accessible. You can visit everything within 30-45 minutes, so such museum should show more.
