I had a private guide since I was doing research. I highly recommend going with one as you will have access to some buildings otherwise locked. I've been to about five skansens and this is the largest. Very well presented with a great book available. You won't see it all in one day.

Large space, great for a walk with history. We had a great, funny guide who took us inside of some buildings.
There is a chance to buy some food and art among "the skansen". As well as I can recommend buying local art (similar pieces are more expensive in Solina), unfortunately food was a disappointment.

We did a family history trip to Poland in May to see the towns of my ancestors (my maternal side came from SE Poland) and we had just finished visiting the villages and meeting distant relatives. We were on our way back to Krakow when we stopped in Sanok to visit this skansen..This open air museum gave me good mental pictures of how my family really lived in the 19th and early 20th century before coming to America. The churches and the Jewish temple were outstanding, as were the barns, gardens, and the manor house. There were also shops and an iconography studio in which the artist did demonstrations of the process of creating an icon. The Sanok skansen was the ideal way to cap off the research we'd been doing for several days, and I wish we'd had more time there. There's also a snack bar there to get a bite to eat as well. Our genealogical travel company, Polish Origins, had also arranged a super guide, which added to our understanding of the region. So happy we made this stop, and I'm planning to return in 2025 to wander and linger a bit more.

In sanok, the Skansen is a group of old buildings from around Sanok that have been brought to this area and set up.

These include old churches, schools etc. and give you an insight into light from 100 to 150 years ago.

They are all well preserved and worth visiting.

I would suggest you take a guide - on Mondays the Skansen is free, but again, without a guide it isn't quite as good.

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.

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.

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.

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.
