Skansen – open-air ethnographic museum
One of Poland’s biggest skansens was arranged in Olsztynek in 1938. It was started with copies of farm timber houses brought from Köningsberg.
Today the scenic open-air ethnographic park features several dozen original and reconstructed houses from Warmia, Masuria and even Lithuania. Visitors can admire half-timbered houses, granaries, wind-mills, farm outbuildings, a country-inn, and a church. All fully equipped and with animals which makes the whole experience very realistic.
