Buildings of small trade, commerce and local administration, and old wooden village churches contain authentic items, which represent the everyday lifestyle of the Ukrainian village and townsfolk. Local volunteers and modern Ukrainian artisans selling their wares dress in old-style clothes and demonstrate the use of authentic everyday items to visitors.
