Beekeeping Skansen in Swarzedz (full name: Open Air Museum and Museum of Apiculture of prof. Ryszard Kostecki in Swarzędz) is one of the largest ethnographic exhibitions, devoted to the history of beekeeping.

Among mature trees and shrubs more than 230 hives of various shapes have been placed. The exhibits include hives platforms, figurative, architectural, lock, straw and others types of hives. Children like best the very colorful figural and architectural beehives that look like building structures (eg. cottages or churches), but perhaps the greatest attraction is the large size hive in shape of a bear.

At the museum you can see an exhibition dedicated to the history of utility insects and silk industry in Poland and abroad.

You can take part here in organized events such as:

  • museum lessons (life of bees)
  • demonstrations of live bees in the demonstration hive and beekeeping of solitary bees,
  • demonstrations of wax candles manufacturing,
  • art field trips for children and young people,
  • picnics and bonfires
