Felicja Curyłowa Farmstead Museum

Zalipie’s most celebrated artist was Felicja Curyłowa (1904-1974), who most embodied the spirit of Zalipie and was often visited by passersby and tourists. Upon her death, the Cepelia Foundation – Poland’s folk art preservation and promotion organisation – bought her property and in 1978 transferred it to the care of the Tarnów Regional Museum. Several other local 19th century buildings, including a barn, pigsties and a woodshed, were moved to the farmstead and today it is accessible to the public as an open-air museum of folk architecture and art. Most impressive is the interior of Curyłowa’s three-room residence filled with decorative ornaments by the artist, original furnishings, farm tools, folk costumes and paper crafts.
