Started in 1906 by local husband and wife Teodora and Izydor Gulgowscy, Poland’s oldest open air museum features an extraordinary collection of 40 or so buildings dating from the 18th to the early 20th century. Set over 22 hectares of lush green land on the edge of a large lake, find a superb assortment of farms, manor houses, windmills, churches and other traditional buildings from Kashubia and nearby Kociewia, many of them furnished and staffed by English-speaking guides who can tell you a little of their history. Very much a hands-on experience, many of the buildings still function as they used to, such as the steam-driven sawmill and the lovely wooden church, built in 1700 and still performing Mass and the occasional wedding. With plenty of information in English and so much to do, you need to give this place at least three hours of your time. The museum also has a small restaurant serving traditional food cooked over an open fire.
