This little yet impressive branch of Nizhny Novgorod State History and Architecture Museum and Reserve houses folk art and craft from the 17th to the 21st centuries. Visitors can explore a typical peasant home containing decorative architraves and household items. Among other things, carved wooden gates and furniture with antique symbols catch the eye.
