Museum of Wooden Architecture: from the Church to the Merchant's House

The Museum of Wooden Architecture is located opposite the Suzdal Kremlin, on the opponent bank of the Kamenka River. In the 1960s, wooden churches, houses, baths and household buildings were brought here from all over the region. High multitier Transfiguration Church from the village of Kozlyatyevo is an exemplary wooden building of the 18th century without metal nails. The 18th-century’s Resurrection Church with a refectory and a tent bell tower was brought here from the village of Patakino. Inside there is an interesting three-level iconostasis. Two windmills also date from the 18th century.
There is a whole street of residential buildings in the Museum of Wooden Architecture. The interiors of houses are indicative of the owner’s welfare. For example, the house of a wealthy owner of the XIX century has two floors: the first floor contains weaver looms and a spinning wheel, and the second one - a living room with a stove and an article of luxury - a wooden bed. In a less rich house you can see only built-in benches, a plank bed and shelves, which were cut from wood simultaneously with the construction of the house. Through the door you enter the pantry first, where food was stored, then the anteroom, where tools and utensils were kept, and only then you appear in a room heated by a stove. The merchants Agapovs’ house of the 18th century is also two-story. There was a forge on its first, stone floor. The living part was located on the wooden second floor. Merchants’ household items of the early XX century have been preserved here. The Museum of Wooden Architecture regularly hosts folk festivals, like Maslenitsa, during which goose fights are held, and the Suzdal Cucumber Day which is celebrated in July.
