The museum is located in Parochial School, the landmarked building of regional significance built at the end of the 19th century. The museum exhibition centers around folk icons, a little-known cultural phenomenon.
Folk icons first appeared in Siberia during the mass migration of peasants at late 19th–early 20th century. Suzun icon painting industry supplied the entire Siberian region with icons.
The museum exhibition displays over 500 original items: over 200 copies of domestic folk icons, copper-cast Orthodox icons, books and church utensils. The museum even shows icons that were chopped up with an axe during the repressions.
Opening hours: Wednesday through Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., closed on Monday, Tuesday
