The museum is located several kilometers away from Minsk – between the villages of Ozertso and Strochitsa. It is often named "Museum in Ozertso", "Museum Strochitsa", "Strochitsy"… The idea to develop an open-air complex was first voiced by well-known Belarusian artist Ferdynand Ruszczyc in 1908. However, World War I and World War II, the need to rebuild the postwar country postponed the opening of the museum for many decades. A large-scale scientific expedition involving architects, historians and ethnographers was undertaken in 1976. The expedition toured various regions of Belarus, searching, examining and transporting specimens of wooden architecture, household goods and crafts to the site of the present-day museum. A number of expositions featuring architecture, culture and everyday life of three ethnographic regions – Central Belarus, Poozerye and Dnieper Region. – were opened in the period from 1987 to 1994. Today the museum displays nearly 40 objects.

Il museo di Marc Chagall a Vitebsk

La città natale di Marc Chagall – Vitebsk – fu una sua fonte d’ispirazione inesauribile durante tutta la vita del pittore. Le cupole delle chiese e le vie antiquate, casette minuscole e empori con le insegne, il susseguirsi dei cancelli di legno, carrettieri per le strade per sempre rimasero sulle tele pittoresche insieme ai suoi famosi angeli e amanti che si librano nel cielo…

Casa-museo Vankovich

Pressoché al centro della Minsk odierna si è conservata una modesta villa nobiliare.
