The terrain is very large, you should have good shoes on and adjust to a lot of running. You will find houses from many regions of the country, mills, churches, a school, farms, etc. In some cases, the houses are furnished with traditional furniture and decorated as before. There are also animals on some farmsteads. The food in the museum's own restaurant is delicious.
Really nice place for visit! Recommend for families. Large domain for visiting - approx 3 hours long. Good restaurants within the place. Various types of old houses from all regions of the country.
I think this one of the most beautiful open air museums what I have ever visited. Place is very beautiful for walk, you can see how was live in the past. I was there in March and all houses aren’t open just from April place coming more to live, I heard best is during summer. I really recommend to everyone.
