The Stable Yard Museum is located in front of the entrance to the Rostov Kremlin and is part of numerous museum expositions of the Kremlin. The stable yard was built in the middle of the 17th century simultaneously with the Rostov Kremlin, the main residence of Metropolitan Jonah Sysoevich of Rostov and Yaroslavl.  

Rostov Metropolitan Jonah Sysoevich had a great influence under Patriarch Nikon, so he decided to build a huge residence in Rostov. It was built in the period from 1650 to 1690. The stable yard was a necessary attribute of such residences. It was built behind the fortress wall at the exit, so that the metropolitan could immediately get into the carriage at the entrance. The building of the Stable Yard was built in the style of ancient Russian chambers.  

For a long time the Stable yard was in a ruined state, and the city authorities planned to demolish it. However, in 2013, its restoration began. In 2021, the museum received its first visitors.  

The Stable Yard Museum is made in the form of the "П" with an inner courtyard opened from the side of entrance to the Rostov Kremlin. Here you can visit an interesting exhibition of various carriages of the 18th-19th century: carriages, yeast, phaetons, wagons, tarantas, sleighs and much more. The original carriages were assembled and restored by the “Voyage” Company. This exhibition in the Stable Yard looks very harmonious, since for centuries the carriages of the Metropolitan Court were kept here. 

In addition to the exhibition of carriages in the museum halls of the Stable Yard, you can visit the exhibition "Icons and folk crafts". It presents a large number of exhibits and paintings of various craft schools: Palekh, Fedoskino, Gorodets, Abramtsevo and many others. In 2021, the exhibition "Giving Constructivism" was opened here. It presents artistic samples of the Soviet school of constructivism of the early 20th century.
