Kasubian Ethnographic Park – outdoor museum

Posted by

The Kasubian Ethnographic Park is an old outdoor museum in Poland a little bit outside the village of Koscierzyna Wdzydze Kiszewskie. The museum got a large collection of old buildings from the Kasubian region of Poland displaying what the country side used to look like in this region of Poland a century or more ago. The museum dates back to 1906 and is actually the oldest outdoor museum in the Poland.

The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 to 6 at night in the summer months of July and August – the opening times is reduced through the rest of the year when it close at 4 and 3 during the winter months – I guess with the short daylight period of the winter months there isn’t much to see during the latter part of the day anyways.

The museum is pretty big – it is spread out across an area of 22 hectares of land so the 45 major buildings on display is pretty far between giving the whole area a bit of an impression of an actually country setting.

You can enter some of the old buildings to see what life might have been like in the old days when people still lived inside these houses. I think some of the houses were closed off this year due to the current situation so more might be open next year – but even with the reduced access there was enough to see to spend 3-4 hours at the area to walk around it and see everything they had on display.
