The cottage museum of the People's Artist and famous singer Nazarii Yaremchuk is one of the architectural and cultural peculiarities of the town of Vyzhnytsya. It is located in the suburbs, in the quarter Rivnia. Yaremchuk's sister Kateryna has created the museum in their parents' house where Nazarii spent his childhood and youth. She named it after one of his most popular songs — "Smerekova hata" ("Fir-tree house").

Yaremchuk house is a typical Bukovyna single-storey building with a high tiled roof situated in the center of the quarter to the left off the road. Nazarii's older sister Kateryna looks after the cottage and enjoys sharing stories about her brother with the visitors.
