Museum of Ukrainian Folk Architecture, Rural Life and Folk Art

To the southwest of Kiev, in the picturesque setting of Pirogovo village there is an open-air Museum of Ukrainian Folk Architecture, Rural Life and Folk Art, stretching on a vast territory of 150 hectares. In this village-museum the unique collection of folk architecture from all regions of Ukraine has been gathered. The visitors to the museum are welcome not only to admire rare exhibits but also visit folk crafts shops and a traditional restaurant serving Ukrainian cuisine.

The museum was founded in the late 1960s, but almost a decade had passed before it was open to the public. The first visitors walked around this wonderful village in 1976. For three decades of its existence the museum has accumulated a rich collection of over 200 structures, some of which were brought there from various parts of the country. Some exhibits are replicas of typical traditional buildings. The museum also boasts an impressive 40,000 collection of ethnographic exhibits, among which there are folk costumes, fabrics, embroidery, carpets, ceramics, articles of metal, wood, glassware, musical instruments, paintings, tools and household articles. It is significant to note that the considerable amount of items are set out not in the modern exhibition halls, but in the peasant buildings, so the visitors can not only visualize but see with their own eyes how people lived a century or two ago.
The museum's exhibition is divided in two departments: Architecture and Life in the Ukrainian Village before the Revolution and Folk Architecture and Life in the Socialist Village.
The first part of the exhibition represents the culture and the way of life of six important regions: Middle Dnepr area (Naddnepryanshina), Poltava area (Poltavshina) and Slobodian Ukraine (Slobozhanshchina), Polesye, Podolia, the Carpathians (Karpaty) and Southern Ukraine. The exhibition includes traditional houses with all necessary utensils, barns, wills and even typical for that specific region trees and plants.
