OPEN AIR MUSEUM AND ETHNOGRAPHIC PARK IN WYGIELZOW
Vistula Ethnographic Park Museum in Wygielzow and Lipowiec Castle is a great practical history lesson. An attraction that stands as a testament to the history of the construction traditions of the Vistula village.
In the area located at the foot of the Lipowiec Castle, in the 1960s, buildings that are examples of old Vistula village construction started to be collected. Since 2007, the medieval seat of the Gryfit family, along with historic village cottages, a church and the development of a small town, has also been part of the museum.
The area of 5.3 hectares gathered 25 monuments of wooden architecture and other buildings characteristic of rural areas of Lesser Poland. They include peasant homesteads, with orchards and home gardens restored around them. The Open Air Museum also displays artisan workshops, a church with a bell tower, and buildings comprising a small urban complex with local architecture.
The museum's exhibits include a 1730 manor house, reconstructed in the 21st century within the Open Air Museum, built in the traditional Polish style, which previously stood in Droginia. Today you can explore interiors decorated in accordance with the fashion prevailing among wealthy noble families from the mid-19th century until the end of World War II. Part of the building has been designated for rental - two rooms can be booked for conferences or concerts.
