Interesting but pity there is not more access inside the buildings
Aug 2020 • Family
Set aside 2-3 hours, and refresh yourself with coffee and very good cake at the end.

There are some really interesting old houses and farm buildings from the Bojkowie, Lemkowie, Dolinianie and Pogorzanie regions - made from wood, straw, wooden shingles. What strikes one is how cozy these homes were and well organised. And the Ruthenian churches/dwors are outstanding in their constructions.

This ethnographic park ranks #3 in Europe for a reason. Buildings like the bakery, chemists, clockmaker, post office etc. offer fascinating insights into the past as do the watermill, sawmill etc. But I particularly liked the simply constructed farm cum animal buildings with their straw roofs and practical interiors.

All in wood
May 2019
Can't remember how many times I have visited this place before, but every time I do it is like a new experience within those old wooden buildings. It is the oldest and largest open air museum (the Swedish word skansen is used in Poland to name such places) in Poland (there are older such places within todays borders, but they were established in places that didn't belong to Poland before WWII), set up just after WWII. The museum presents the folk culture of the the eastern part of the Polish Carpathians. Established in 1958 this museum has its head office in castle park in central Sanok, as both establishements: the open air museum and historic museum are combined into one unit. First time we visited it was in the early nineties, and the part now called Rynek Galicyjski (Galician market) didn't even exist, it was just an open field. Many many houses moved from their origin place to this museum plus three completely different orthodox churches (tserkvas) and one catholic church are on display. Also a wooden manor. There's also a part commemorating long tradition of oil extraction, as Podkarpacie region was the first in the world to make use of crude oil. Skansen in Sanok is definitelly a place one must visit.

Very nice museum
Sep 2019
A lot of old architecture, unfortunately not all buildings were open, only in some of them I was able to see the interior. Plenty of village houses, reconstructed small town, few churches, manor and oil industry sector (since oil industry pioneer Ignacy Łukasiewicz was a Pole). Nice place to spend 2-3 hours.

Old buildings moved or reconstructed in one place
Apr 2019 • Friends
The Folk Architecture Museum is the right name for this place. Old Orthodox churches, churches and huts from neighboring regions were moved here. In addition, an old Galician town was reconstructed. The buildings are well-kept and it is worth visiting the open-air museum with a guide.

A must see in Poland
Jul 2018 • Family
Take a guide (inexpensive), they will open the houses for you, and you'll see the legacy houses of the Polish people of the last 3 centuries (Malopolska, south east of Poland). The children too liked it a lot (10 to 17 years old).

Interesting recreation of folk architecture
Jul 2018 • Couples
Much effort has gone into creating this outdoor museum. We toured on our own not being aware of how you would join a party with English speaking guide. Compared to similar museums seen in the UK (eg Black Country), USA (the Plymouth Plantation) and sites in New Zealand, we felt much more could be done to engage the visitor, and maybe this will happen in time. The building descriptions were just that, ie brief history and its use. A few had interiors which you could view through windows or walk inside. It would have been fascinating to know much more about the daily lives of these people, eg by the use of volunteers in costume.

Open air museum
Jun 2018 • Family
What a find! Colonial Williamsburg, Olde Sturbridge Village like open air museum. lots of walking so be ready. Old time village as it was long ago. Shops, houses, churches, and many other sights. We had an English speaking woman to guide us through the place. Can take 3-4 hours to experience. A wonderful, historical find in Sanok. Well worth a visit and the time. Bring water.
