Not particularly informative - there are no signs, no staff to ask questions. It is more a place to have a stroll around and taste the atmosphere than for anyone who would want to learn details.

About 7 buildings spread around a large field. Lots of equipment and a leaflet gives you the necessary information in Polish and English. There is a picnic area if you want a rest. Plenty of parking but also a short cycle ride form downtown.

We visited the Skansen yesterday on our way to Bialowieza, it is definitely worth stopping by. You'll get to see how people used live in this part of Poland. Having spent my childhood in Podlasie it also brings many nostalgic memories.

This place definitely needs more attention from its owners. Sometimes gates to this place is open, sometimes closed. Even if this is open there was nobody inside who could show us around. We just came inside and take a 15 minutes tour by ourselves. It...More

This is a nice place for history lovers. The others will not be amazed. Downside is that there is no guide available onsite.

Discovered this site while touring the area in mid-October with Road Scholar. As the facility appeared to be closed when we passed it by, we had our hotel call to schedule a visit the following afternoon. We walked down from our accommodation and waited about...More
