Provincial Town of Central Europe


The exhibiton of the town tells the history of people who lived and worked there. The stories about Jewish families, hairdresser, cobbler and many others are at touristÔÇÖs hand.

According to the model concept, a marketplace (with its northern frontage of buildings and neighbouring streets) is the central element in the urban layout of the museum town. Although it is only a part of a future town exposition, it gives the opportunity to present most of the socio – economic phenomena in towns. The dominant feature in this town is a late baroque town hall from G┼éusk. Next to it are two wooden residential buildings from Wojs┼éawice linked by arcades. The frontage ends with a house from W─ůwolnica, with a characteristic roof. This part of the town includes: houses of the Jaworski and Libhaber families from Siedliszcze, a small wheelwrightÔÇÖs workshop from Be┼é┼╝yce, a restaurant from Zemborzyce with a characteristic veranda, a school from Bobrowniki, fire station from Wilk├│w, the local council gaol from Samokl─Öski. Barns from Kamionka and Tyszowce are located next to the already existing farmstead from Ostr├│w Lubelski. The wheelwrightÔÇÖs workshop, local gaol, school and barns have all been transferred to the museum. Other buildings are replicas with some reconstructed elements. The surroundings of buildings are carefully reconstructed. It includes some elements of small architecture and various types of surfaces used for pavements, roads and squares.

The Museum town represents the historical diversity in the construction of buildings and materials as well as their functions. It serves as a relic of past generations living in towns, and invites the visitors to get acquainted with their lives.
