About museum

It all began a long time ago, when, as legend has it, seven brothers lived in the village: 7 young, strong handsome men. However, they found something not very good for themselves: they were highwaymen and their trade was robbery. The brothers were feared by both the villagers and strangers; they were called “the evil brothers”.

But not far from this place, toward the direction of Yaroslavl, the wise old man Makariy resided. He looked at these brothers and decided to give them advice: instead of beating people and insulting them, it would be better to beat wooden blocks.

The brothers listened to the wise words. They thought that if they could beat the wooden blocks wisely, then they could get rich. And they began to master a new business for themselves.

They went into the woods to chop birch and linden wood. They were so successful that they became famous for many miles around with their products, which were so necessary in every home and for every housewife: spoons, ladles and other kitchen utensils.

Since then, the village of Semibratovo has become rich and has also become famous for its wood chips trade. The brothers came to their senses, and they entered the royal service. In honor of the wise old man Makariy, the village of Makarovo stands near that place.

That is why the Wooden blocks Museum was erected in Semibratovo.
