Malye Korely is an open-air museum of wooden architecture, which represents traditional lifestyle of northern Russian villages.

Malye Korely open-air museum of wooden architecture is located in 25 km from Arkhangelsk on the right bank of the Northern Dvina River.

Malye Korely museum was founded in 1964 and opened in 1971. They travelled around Arkhangelsk Province looking for old wooden buildings that could be taken to the museum. The first monument that appeared in the place was a windmill of the XIX Century from the village of Bor, now abandoned.

The oldest and most valuable monuments of wooden architecture are the Church of the Ascension and the Church of St. George. Both date back to the XVII Century.

Aside of churches, the museum hosts domestic wooden buildings, typical for Arkhangelsk Province. One can see houses, windmills, forges and granaries of the XIX and early XX Centuries.

Sometimes the museum is called “Malye Karely” but it is not correct. "Malye Karely" is the name of the hotel located nearby.
