The Open Air Museum is dedicated to the culture and the way of life of the Mountain Mari people, inhabitants of the right-bank area of the Mari El Republic. It was inaugurated in the summer of 1983, in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the city of Kozmodemyansk.

The museum spans a territory of six hectares. It contains a collection of residential and support buildings of the Mountain Mari, constructed in the 19th-20th centuries: a forge, a "kurnaya izba" (traditional log house with no chimney), a bee house, a "banya po-belomu" (bathhouse with chimney) and a "banya po-chernomu (bathhouse without chimney) as well as various kinds of fences - "tyn" (lattice fence), palisade etc. There also is a fully functional windmill.
