Architectural and ethnographic Museum “Khokhlovka”

Khokhlovka is the main architectural and ethnographic open-air museum in Perm Krai, Russia.

It is named after a small village near the museum on the Khokhlovka River. The museum is located in Perm municipal district, on the right bank of the Kama River, an hour's drive  from Perm.

It was founded in 1969 and opened for visitors in 1980. It is the first open-air architectural museum of wooden architecture in the Urals. Khokhovka includes 23 unique monuments of  the17th – early 20th centuries. The territory is about 35 ha,  with many wooden constructions and buildings

that were  moved  from different places of Perm Krai.

The art of building in wood is one of the defining elements of traditional Russian culture. Throughout the country’s vast forested zone, different regions shared common principles of construction and decoration, while demonstrating distinctive local traits. Today many

of those regions have open-air museums of wooden architecture dedicated to the display not only of architecture but also traditional crafts and folkways.
