During coronavirus restrictions - boring.
Jul 2020
If you seen any other Polish ethnographical park you're not going to be surprised here. It's a good value, you can easily spend here two hours walking and watching those houses. But during coronavirus restrictions it's just boring - there are only simple descriptions of each house (in Polish), you cannot go into any of the rooms just peek through a glass from the main house's corridor, there's no staff to tell you anything or anyone if you have any questions yourself. Simply boring - just a nice park to spend 1-2 hours.

Time tunnel - not to be missed
Jun 2018 • Friends
From the 18th century to the 20th century, a very good open museum, similates life once upon a time. Lots of old buildings, a school with a teacher who teaches caligraphy, a windmill etc. Everything is very well made, with guides in traditional costumes. A nice coffee break in the middle of the route, and soup at the end, made the experience even better.

What an amazing place. Gorgeous architecture and garden from a selection of authentic wind mills water mills, church, and houses + some new-build as per originals. an enormous amount of work has gone into preserving this ensemble of rare beauty and simplicity. What is left is a rare feeling of romantic simplicity and raw elegance. Gorgeous.

Educative, fun and beautiful
Aug 2016 • Family
We went as a group of4 adults and 2 children (3,5 years and 3,5 months). The place is big which makes a wonderful long walk among the little houses by which you make stops and learn how people in Poland used to live. As it is open air - try to plan a trip on a nice sunny day and you will enjoy it a lot!
Apart from the houses and exhibitions inside there are also fee stops with farm animals: sheep, horses, ducks, chickens which kids can enjoy a lot.
Another great feature is a little cafe where you can order something to drink (based on herbs as well as regular tea/coffee) and cakes. I had Rose Lemonade and it was delicious!
What would make the place excellent: 1) shows (people dressed up as they used to working on the farm or showing how people lived), and maybe a better restaurant by the entrance (it was good but average with Polish cuisine).
Point for descriptions in English and German!

Skansen in Olsztynek
Aug 2015 • Friends
Great place to see not only the old houses from XIX century but also the interior design of these homes. Best to visit during summer months where you can see the beautiful flowers blooming in the front yards and the horses roaming around. Skansen is also a home to a few old windmills. Worth to visit if you like the old countryside. Great for kids.

Skansen Olsztynek
Jul 2015 • Family
Fantastic open air museum of old times, mainly XIX century from the region. Anything from houses and well preserved interiors with details and period furniture and tools, some originals, farms, a church, windmills and others. Well worth a visit to appreciate how much progress there has been in the past 100 years. A small entry charge, clean toilets, large car park, a restaurant and shops on site. Plenty of space to stroll and rest. The area around the windmills is good for a picknic.

Interesting and Educational Diversion
May 2015 • Family
Muzeum Budownictwa Ludowego is an ethnographic park in Olsztynek. It is one of the oldest and most frequently visited open-air museums in Poland. The museum grounds span 90 hectares and contain over sixty architecturally diverse buildings and small-scale architectural features from Ermland, Masuria, the Vistula estuary region, Sambia, Barcja, and Lithuania. The majority of the buildings on display (houses, farm buildings, utility rooms, church buildings, manufacturing facilities, etc.) date back to the mid-19th century. Interpreters are available in many of the buildings to answer questions and help you appreciate what you are seeing. The museum also features over 8,000 items representing material culture and over 2,000 works by folk artists. Manufacturing facilities on display include a water mill, four wind mills, an oil crusher, a blacksmith's shop, a smoking chamber, and a pottery shop. Visitors can also see animal breeds characteristic to the region including skuddle sheep, the oldest domesticated sheep breed of northern Europe that became all but extinct during the Second World War. A visit to Muzeum Budownictwa Ludowego takes about 2-3 hours. Be sure to wear good walking shoes. Bring your camera and either a sun hat or a rain jacket depending on the weather. There is an on-site restaurant and a few vendors selling souvenirs near the museum entrance. An excursion to Muzeum Budownictwa Ludowego is not only an interesting and educational diversion, but also an excellent opportunity for a stroll in an exceptionally charming and relaxing place.

Open-air museum of the Polish countryside
May 2014 • Family
Large museum of the history of the Polish countryside. Skansen interesting and worth a visit. Top summer and on a day when the weather is nice. Many of the buildings you can enter. Being first is definitely worth a buy guided tours.
