In 1994 the local lore museum received a great new addition: the museum director purchased the neighboring old house that dates back to 1880.
The house belonged to the Vagins. After the death of the last representative of the Vagins, Maria Vagin, there were no heirs and the house was on sale. The museum director collected the necessary sum of money and, by hook or by crook, purchased the old house that was to be an ethnographic museum.
The Novopskov County ethnographic museum can be called Free Village Area museum
It depicts the traditional way of life of Free Village Area inhabitants of the 19th century.
The museum has a yard with an old well called zhuravel ("Stork").
There is an exhibition of old agricultural tools in the yard.
The entrance fee is/was 10 UAH.
