Perhaps one of the most striking museums. is an “Museum of Ukrainian Architecture and Life Mamaev Sloboda”. After all, it is in it that every visitor will be able to fully feel the spirit of the Ukrainian Cossacks, touch his life and see the life of that time.
About the history of the Mamaev Sloboda Museum
The museum opened not long ago. Its official opening took place in July 2009, although a decree on the opening of the museum was established on July 9, 1990. The purpose of the museum is considered to be the revival of tradition and a touch on the longer life of Ukrainians. By the way, they decided to realize this idea by creating a “living history”, that is, when life is completely recreated in a certain section of that time.
The main slogan of the museum and its name
According to one version, the museum is named after the Ukrainian Cossack. The main motto that guided the creation of the museum is the phrase of Guillaume Levasser de Beauplan, which in translation sounds like “Ukraine - the land of the Cossacks". I think it is clear that everything presented in the museum is somehow connected with the Ukrainian Cossacks.
Exposition of the Mamaev Sloboda Museum
As mentioned above, all exhibits of the museum are presented in the form of a "living history". Any visitor can go into the house of that time, look at the decoration. It is important to note that in addition to houses there is also a church., Which is unique in its architecture. It consists of three floors and is built of wood, without the use of nails (which is very surprising for visitors). Museum visitors need around one and a half hours to bypass the entire exposition, although there are a little over a hundred objects there.
An important part of the exposition is the full functionality of all museum objects. Any visitor will be able to drink well water from a museum well or buy a blacksmith's work made in a working blacksmith.
Nevertheless, the main idea of creating the museum was the opportunity to show people the life of that time, and, of course, the organizers did it. For those who come in a national Ukrainian shirt - admission is free.
