You will find yourself among unknown and rare things which a modern person is not used to. Here one can get to know about traditional methods of washing, boiling and bleaching clothes, carrying water, heating water in a samovar. Visitor will see the surprizing variety of household utensils and equipment, find farmers' cookery recipes.
