The Museum of folk architecture and life of Ukraine also known as the open air Museum in Pirogovo, which has a huge area the size of 135 hectares and is situated in the southern outskirts of Kiev.

In Pirogovo you can see 275 items of Ukrainian architecture of the last 500 years: the wooden churches, windmills, houses, wells, beehives and more. Museum houses objects of everyday life, works of folk art, tools, clothes, furniture, wood and pottery, and musical instruments. Most of these items are exhibited inside houses and churches that you can easily visit — enter, ovserve and take pictures.

The whole Museum is divided into sectors on a temporary and territorial principles: huts give place to stone houses of Western Ukraine from Lviv and Khmelnytsky, a bit similar to the architecture of the Slovaks and Czechs. Further, there is a large area of modern houses — each region of Ukraine has presented its type of suburban house with furniture and household items, typical for that place. Most of the buildings moved from various parts of Ukraine and carefully placed in the Museum.

The Museum look more like a Park and it's a favorite vacation spot of Kiev. Here you can ride horses, dine in many restaurants under the open sky with Ukrainian "borsch", bacon or barbeque and then take a rest on the lawn. There are operating churches in Pirogovo. Believers can order any Orthodox ritual. For those who are interested in events, Pirogovo often hosts festivals of folk art, fairs where you can buy products of folk artists.

In recent years the Museum had a few fires. The last big fire was arson and was committed to conceal the theft of a valuable collection of XVIII century chests that were exhibited in the burned building.

If you visit this place for the first time, you should like.
There was a couple of weeks ago after 5 years from the last visit.
For 5 years, nothing added, and what was declined, the buildings not being repaired, restoration is missing.
Asking for input 40 UAH per person, and 1.09.2016 introduced to also pay for your bike, this is done solely for the purposes of Commerce, as on-site Bicycle rental and more expensive it is what is behind the fence. I think before you introduce a fee for the bike we must first make the roads in the Park, because the asphalt or completely absent or covered in holes. It is a pity that funding is not available or it is not on purpose. For the input with a girl and one bike gave 100 UAH, he was on roller skates, ride them around the Park is impossible for the above mentioned reasons. Only because of the complete breakdown
decided to leave a review. I apologize for such a long text

Если посещать это место впервые, то должно понравиться.
Был пару недель назад спустя 5 лет с последнего визита.
За 5 лет ничего не добавили, так еще и то что было пришло в упадок, здания не ремонтируются, реставрация отсутствует.
За вход просят 40Грн с человека, а с 1.09.2016 ввели еще и плату за свой велосипед, сделано это исключительно в целях коммерции, так как на территории есть прокат велосипедов и он дороже того, что есть за забором. Как мне кажется перед тем как вводить плату за велосипед надо сначала сделать дороги в парке, потому как асфальт или отсутствует полностью, либо весь в ямах. Очень жаль что финасирования нет либо оно идет не по назначению. За вход с девушкой и одним велосипедом отдал 100грн, сам был на роликовых коньках, ездить на них по парку нельзя по выше указанным причинам. Только из-за полного расстройства
решил оставить отзыв. Прошу прощения за столь длинный текст

Excellent Museum we open air. The beauty is that in this Museum has transferred these houses from different parts of Ukraine, as is, with all the interior and stuff. In the houses you can enter during working hours, to feel the atmosphere of the time.

Превосходный музей нас открытом воздухе. Вся прелесть в том, что в этот музей переносили настоящие домики из разных частей Украины, как есть, со всем внутренним интерьером и вещами. В домики можно заходить в рабочие часы, чтобы почувствовать атмосферу того времени.

Very large Museum, if I may call it. Good place to walk with family, weekends for example. The Museum contains houses and churches from all regions of Ukraine, it was interesting to see how early people lived. A very large area, under the scorching sun is quite difficult all day to go through, but for some it is not a problem

Очень большой музей, если так можно назвать. Хорошее место для прогулки с семьей, на выходных например. В музее собраны хатки и церкви со всех регионов Украины, было интересно посмотреть как раньше жили люди. Очень большая территория, под палящим солнцем достаточно сложно весь день проходить, однако для некоторых это не проблема

In Pirogovo I loved it.

Was there on 14 August 2016 on the feast of Maccabeus.

A lot of people were, all sorts of Goodies and fairs in the territory, a line big, but it's worth it.

Ancient houses in the Ukrainian regions since the 17th century to our time, there is even exposure of the "socialist village", where private houses the 60-70s of the 20th century, we are more familiar and many people live in such houses to this day.

It was interesting to see the big windmills up close, walk around the huge territory of the Museum under the open sky, here, the incredible scenery and fresh air, which is so lacking in the great metropolis.

Recommend here to go for the weekend, just 20-30 minutes drive from Kiev.

Entry - 40 UAH (per adult), kids don't know.

В Пирогово мне безумно понравилось.

Был там 14 августа 2016 на праздник Маковея.

Людей много было, всякие вкусности и ярмарки на территории, очередь на кассе большая, но оно того стоит.

Старинные дома украинских регионов начиная с 17 века и до нашего времени, есть даже экспозиция "социалистическое село", где представлены частные дома 60-70ых годов 20 века, которые нам уже более знакомы и многие люди в таких домах живут и по сей день.

Интересно было смотреть на большие мельницы вблизи, гулять по огромной территории музея под открытым небом, здесь невероятные пейзажи и свежий воздух, которого так не хватает в большом мегаполисе.

Рекомендую сюда съездить на выходных, всего 20-30 минут езды от Киева.

Вход - 40 гривен (за взрослого), детский не знаю.

It would be better if you have food to have a pickin on the grass near old fashioned house or windmill. If you don't, don't worry there are a list of cafes with local ukrainian cuisine

Beautiful place, definitely worth visiting. I go there each autumn and spring, and I am not going to change my routine.
Lately Pirogovo has undergone some improvements - there are clearer maps and road signs. It would be great if there we better bicycle trails though.
Overall, great experience. Bring your kids, bring sandwiches and have fun!

Very interesting to discover the traditionnal Ukrainy house . Not very easy to find by bus. My solution since the Kyiv Center is to take the tube Line Blue Vsytavkovyi tsentr (225) take the tramway (n°11) on the Akademika Hlushkova Avenue  in from of the National Exhibition Center of Ukraine.
Line 11 terminus direct and after you walk 20mn   Price ( 4 hryvnia Tube + 3 hryvnia tramway)  Total A-R  24 Hryvnia

It's beautiful. Always worth a visit, but better in the warmer time of the year. Particularly noteworthy local workers: very spiritual people, they are a joy to meet the interested visitor, all tell and show. The player just wins the hearts.

Он прекрасен. Обязательно стоит побывать, но лучше в теплое время года. Особо стоит отметить местных работников: очень душевные люди, для них в радость встретить интересующегося посетителя, все расскажут и покажут. Гусляр просто покоряет сердца.
