Nizhnesinyachihinsky Museum reserve of Wooden Architecture and Folk Art
Нижнесинячихинский музей-заповедник деревянного зодчества и народного искусства имени И. Д. Самойлова
A unique historical and architectural open-air complex reconstructs a typical 17th-18th century village of the Middle Urals. With the help of an enthusiastic local history connoisseur I.D.Samoilov, who started the restoration with a dilapidated village church, more than 20 constructions were collected here from all the parts of the Urals in 10 years. All these represent fine specimen of wooden architecture: a keep, 17th-19th century mansions, chapels, windmills, a forge, a fire station, a victualling-house with a customs office. Some of these buildings still preserve their interior and are used today as museum expositions. Quite recently, in December 2014, there were stables working in the museum, which were reconstructed by the drawings and sketches of the 19th and early 20th centuries. One the most precious items of the museum reserve is the Church of Transfiguration, a monument of history and architecture of federal importance, a most beautiful church made in the style of Siberian baroque and later turned into a museum. The second floor of the church presents ‘The White Chamber’ — a unique specimen of Ural house painting.
