12 Outdoor Folk Museum In Kiev

Outdoor Folk Museum In Kiev

Today we’ll go to the National Museum of Folk Architecture and Lifestyle of Ukraine. The cosy and very cute place. Probably this is how many foreigners imagine Ukraine.

The museum was located in the suburbs of Kiev in 1976. Its territory was divided into sectors considering the time and space parameters. The exhibits can tell visitors much about folk architecture, peasant lifestyle and popular art of the Ukrainian people.

It’s not possible to extinguish the fire that consumed such a roof.

This cellar was used to store food products and is a kind of an ancient ‘fridge’.

You can buy different souvenirs at these houses.

A school building. Boys were taught separately from girls.

An exposition of windmills located on the highest hill.

A trade fair is situated next to the windmills.

    The windmills and the watermill looks rather interesting. I love those weaved fences. Thanks for sharing.

    It’s really hard for a lot of us here in the U.S. to get our minds around the fact of something 500 years old… I can only count my ancestors back to the 1840s. History is amazing…

      I remember reading something about British history or travel. The article contrasted Britain vs. America. “In America, a {hundreds of years} old building is an historical landmark. In Britain, it’s probably just another fish and chips place.”

    Speak for yourself, I can trace some of my ancestors as far back as the late 16th century and that’s only because I haven’t pursued it any further. I have no problems getting my mind around the fact that something is 500 years old or older.
