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

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.

We had a lovely day out visiting with my elderly parents. There were a lot of benches for resting around the site and a lot of choice for refreshments. The exhibits were very interesting and we learned a lot about historic Czech way of life. The guides were excellent. As it was a festival weekend there was a lot happening... More

Well, I do come from Moravia. So I am not very objective :-) But I have seen bit of world now and I still think, that Moravia is one of the most beautiful, still partially undiscovered part of Europe. Roznov, Stramberk and Hukvaldy. You can make a program around the region very easily. The Wallachian Open Air Museum is really... More

In this place situated about an hour far from Ostrava, main Moravian City, East Czech Rep, you can discover a really nice WOOD TOWN, and do a step back into the past and experience the way the people used to live 200 years ago. Worth a visit, in the surrounded, nice mountains. Adapt fo a daily visit with family.
