The open-air Museum of Folk Architecture is the first and largest (in terms of number of objects) ethnographical museum in Poland.

On a big area (up to 38 ha) the Polish-Ukrainian culture is being presented, and you can see the restored village buildings of ethnic groups that inhabited the borderlands (Boykos, Lemkos, Volyn and Pogórze people).

In addition to residential or business, you can see here religious buildings as well (churches and Eastern Orthodox churches), a post office, a watchmaker's workshop, an inn, a village school, as well as windmills, blacksmith's workshops and a water mill.

Most of the buildings are fully equipped and available to the public.

The ethnographic museum hosts many exhibitions, folk music concerts and different themed workshops and educational activities in which you can learn what everyday life was like in ancient times.
