This folk "museum" is a great way to see how people lived long ago -- one area was set in the outlying hills and the second area was representative of a small village. There was a small outdoor restaurant which served traditional Czech food and beer. We went through old mountains houses, barns, a windmill, and even a church. Then... More

We bought a ticket for all three parts - town, village and mill valley. A guide from the valley was good and the working equipment outstanding. Buildings in all 3 parts excellent, although often it was difficult to see the interior due to many visitors. Nice restaurant with very good local food inside the village. Very awful experience with the... More

If you want to learn more about the life of our predecessors, this is the right place to visit. You will see dozens of houses furnished typically for families of different status living in different times throughout the Moravian region called Walachia. You can read the basic information on the tables placed outside the houses and in some of them... More

Can you imagine your life without elektricity? - There is a chance, the old village helps your imagination. You could be a farmer, much better if you would be a craftsman as it is not wise to rely on the weather. Learn the craft of the miller or the blacksmith, it might be useful in the case you are travelling... More

The exposition is fine, sometimes the staff is not very talkative. Some temporary exhibitions are described just in Czech language, steady exhibitions are multi-language described. Prices in reastaurants, souvenir shops are reasonable, ocassional events in areal are sensible and nice

I visited the Wallachian Open Air Museum and Village recently. It is located in Roznov in the southern part of this beautiful country. What a wonderful layout and easy access this place is. While wandering through the village one could see several venues that plied with real people, a trade hundreds of years old. The village itself with its wooden... More

This open air museum shows the way people of the region lived and worked. Many festivities take place here, often you can see traditional costumer, hear folklore music, and taste regional specialties including sourcraut soup kyselica, giant pastries frgály filled with plum jam, pear spread, poppy seed or blueberries, and hot honey wine medovina.
