About museum

Vladimir Pavlovich Groshev (20.01.1940 – 03.05.2009), a philanthropist and benefactor, had the idea for the museum. The most important thing for him was the revival of folk crafts in the Meshchersky region and more specifically the introduction of children to this original Russian art.

The museum’s activities include workshops (willow weaving, wood painting, making rag dolls, weaving from sheep’s wool, and the basics of working with watercolors), tea drinking from a samovar, entertainment, and tour services.

The exposition of the museum is presented in 16 halls and includes woodcarving, wood painting, willow weaving, and objects of ancient life. There are also many garden and park sculptures at a highly artistic level in the spacious meadow around the museum.
