The Taltsy Museum of Architecture and Ethnography, known as the Wooden Architecture Museum, is a 67-hectare open air museum relating village life in 16th – 19th century Russia. It is located on the road to Lake Baikal, 47 km from Irkutsk (Siberia). The first wooden buildings of the museum were salvaged from the flooded areas of the Ust-Ilimskaya reservoir. 

Taltsy Museum contains 40 monuments and 8000 exhibits of historical value. Two areas (Russian and Buryat) show a large variety of housing and life of the Siberians. The Wooden Architecture Museum is part of the national history and culture heritage of Russia.
