The Golden Creek Museum is the youngest historical and ethnographic museum of Karelia. A copper coin with denomination of two kopecks, which was struck in 1843 and discovered by the outbuilding, marked the beginning of the creation of the museum.
The exposition presents household items from the late 19th – early 20th centuries. Visitors are offered the permanent exposition “Shop of a Karelian Merchant”, lessons on the history of the region and national costume, as well as the interactive program “Conversations Over Evening Tea in a Tavern”.
In the museum you can buy products and souvenirs made by folk craftsmen.
