Tiny cosy museum tells a remarkable story of where a period of modernization and growth in Russia originated. Excellently preserved - similar to the wooden Cabin-museum of Peter I in St. Petersburg.

I enjoyed this little stop. Easy to get to via bus 391 on the way back from the windmills. Takes 30 minutes, but information nicely laid out. Good stop!
