It is one of the best open air museums I have seen. You feel like you are back to 19th c. when you are there. I was lucky because at that time there were almost no tourists. So I had a lot of time to see everything and take pictures. Especialy I like wooden churches!

A real jewel you must not miss on the way to the mountains - the largest open air museum of traditional wooden folk architecture in Poland, still expanding its collection. The best place to learn the culture and lifestyle of several local ethnic groups inhabiting the region in the past, some of them no longer represented in the area since... More

A great place, full of well-preserved wonders from area. All neigbouring cultures ( that sometimes were mixed, and sometimes lived apart ) are clearly described, all ethnical groups are shown. And beside old village houses (that are pretty common for each skansen-type museum) there is reconstructed center of small city with atmosphere dated to pre-war 20t century. Wonderful experience.

Worth viisiting, but you need to go with a guide. Most of the houses are closed and if you are interested in seeing the interior, you need a guide. They have the keys to open the houses and on top of that they give you some extra information about the dwellings. We visiited without a guide and spent more than... More

Totally worth exploring :) I spent almost 3h there and I would have stayed longer if I had more free time. Perfect to go alone, in group or as a family. The only problem is that if you don't have a guide you can't see everything, because most of the houses are locked and the guide opens them.

We spent an enjoyable 2 1/2 hour touring the site with a guide. It is possible to walk around without a guide, but hiring one enables you (1) to have a full historic background of the different cultures represented there and of their traditions (you are told for example, how Christmas and New Year are celebrated in a house where...

Located a mile outside Sanok. Inexpensive and worth spending a few hours here. The only drawback is that the buildings are locked unless you have a guide.

Skansen - a loan straight from Swedish - is an open air museum (the biggest in Poland) scattered in a vast area next to the river in Sanok. A collection of more than 100 old houses and Greek orthodox churches brought in from nearby areas, including an authentic Galician market, with a lots of antique dealers at least on Sunday,... More

Nice preserved houses brought into the museum giving you a nice view of what life looked about 100 years ago.

When you are near Sanok it's absolutely a must to see the Skansen. Take a guide to see interiors of houses and prepare to spend at least half day to see the entire park.
