This is a collection of wooden building showing how peasants lived in the not too distant past. It includes houses and a church. You'll go because it's one of the regular tourist stops and it's moderately interesting but, after being spoiled with spectacular architectural history, it's not overwhelming.

A short taxi ride from the centre of Suzdal is the Museum of wooden architecture which is an open air Museum, containing some amazing examples of Russian wooden buildings which date back centuries and were relocated from their original sites to this Museum in the 1960's. Som eare up to 300 years old and include a summer and winter church (villages would have a small church that was used in Winter, small so that they could heat it and a larger Summer Church that they used when the weather was warmer), different peasants houses, a 'lowly' one and a 'well to do' one, where the status of people were determined by the size of their house, how many Icons hat had etc. It was fascinating especially the skill used to build and decorate the large multi-story wooden buildings.

This museum is located in Suzdal, the second city in the Golden Ring of cities outside of Moscow. The trip requires a train ride from Moscow to Vladimir, then a bus trip from Vladimir to Suzdal, but both modes of transport run routinely everyday so the trip is not a hard one at all. There are so many wooden structures here, ranging from churches and homes to windmills and shops. It is truly an amazing glimps into the history of this ancient Russian city.

This museum depicts houses churches and general life lead by people particularly farmers and artisans. Rich and poor houses show how males dominated.

Love the architecture. Can't have enough of the photos of all the architecture in this area. Apr is a good time to visit for the weather is good, cooling with clear blue sky. Also, it will not be overcrowded with tourists. A good place to also just sit and laze around to enjoy the peacefulness throughout the whole afternoon.
