This museum offers a trip back in time through the history of life in 18th-century southern Poland, complete with bits of Roman Catholic, Greek Catholic, and Jewish villages. Visit the museum, and you can see how people once lived, worked, and worshipped. There’s a building dedicated to Greek Catholic religious icons, along with a recreated town square with a firehouse, post office, pharmacy, and stores where you can buy local crafts.

Know Before You Go

You can take a self-guided tour, or there are guides available for reasonable prices. Food and drink are available at the entrance, but may not be taken inside. Wear comfortable walking shoes, as the paths are dirt/gravel and the area is hilly.
