There aren’t many places where you can experience the diversity of a country’s culture in one location, so this museum is truly unmissable to any visitor to Ukraine wishing to get to the heart of its complex, diverse culture. With all tickets and transport included, this tour explores the Pyrohovo Open Air Museum, known for showcasing Ukrainian tradition in an interactive, immersive way in an extensive, hilly setting. Known locally as the Pyrohovo museum, the Museum of Folk Architecture and Folkways of Ukraine is set over 370 acres just outside of Kiev city and brings together folk architectures and crafts from throughout Ukraine into one location, with its most popular attraction being genuine reconstructions of traditional thatched dwellings, churches and the wooden windmills, vital to the livlihood of Ukrainians nationwide in times gone by. You’ll be amazed by the cultural differences presented here as you tour from region to region accompanied by a local guide, exploring the architectural intricacies of each one as well as their diverse traditional costumes, old textiles, embroidery, carpets, ceramics, metal handicrafts, woodwork and glassware as well as musical instruments, paintings and houseware. With the staff of the museum also wearing traditional dress and each well acquanited with the specificities of each Ukrainian region, you’ll feel transported far from Kiev and centuries into the past.
