State Museum of Wooden Architecture and Folk Art “Malye Korely”. Kargopol-and-Onega tour. - Cya On The Road

Welcome to the State Museum of Wooden Architecture and Folk Art “Malye Korely”. Nowadays  it   is one of the largest open-air museums in our country. On the territory of 140 hectares there are more than 100 monuments brought from different parts of the Arkhangelsk region. The first building was transported here in 1968 and 5 years later the museum was officially opened for the visitors. The criteria of selecting buildings for the museum are very high. Architectural-artistic values, ethnographic and historical typology are taken into consideration; and also, their state of preservation – if 50% of the old wood is lost, the building is not supposed to be moved to the museum.The territory of the museum is divided into 4 sectors, which correspond to the basic rivers of our region: the Dvina, the Pinega, the Onega and the Mezen. Each sector represents a definite type of a northern peasant settlement with architecture and planning typical of the given district. This excursion invites you to see the Kargopol – and – Onega part of the museum.
