Archaeological Wood Museum

The tree archeology museum is one of only three in the world and it happens to be located on the island-town of Sviyazhsk. Archaeological finds and remains of organic materials from the late 16th - 18th centuries are presented here. The building itself is built into an actual hill, due to which guests find themselves in an underground city, located on an authentic 2010 archaeological site. The museum exposition has the remains of log houses of medieval inhabitants of Sviyazhsk, as well as logs and wooden items that have been preserved almost intact. Among the exhibits visitors will also find children's toys, leather gloves, purses and tree stumps, small scale copies of buildings of past centuries and other unique items directly related to Sviyazhsk’s wooden architecture. Guests will also find a reconstruction of the vibrant city on the 21-metre “17th century Sviyazhsk” animation panel. A total of 1,600 items are stored under glass, the most ancient of which are ancient Bulgarian dishes and coins. Tickets cost: 250 roubles for adults, and 200 roubles for children, students and senior citizens.
