  • This is a really amazing place for locals and foreigners to go to. I was able to better understand rural Belarus better. I enjoyed that the museum was pretty much self guided. I was able to see a lot of variety in architecture, crafts, tools, etc. I can't recommend this place enough to people.
  • It is located out of Minsk, but you can go by Uber from Malinovka metro station (the last one on the blue line) and it's going to cost you around 6 roubles. The only issue if you go by Uber, is that on the way back you cannot order an Uber, because you can only order Uber in Minsk. Anyway, there is a bus station nearby that you can use to get back to the city. The museum is very interesting, it's like an old town and you can enter every house and explore how people many years ago live. I recommend it as a family trip on a beautiful weekend day.
