Visiting open air museum in Wdzydze Kiszewskie


An open air museum in Wdzydze Kiszewskie stretches upon 22 ha of the area located at the bank of the beautiful Lake Gołuń. It is a magical place. It is located in heart of Kashubia - region in the Pomeranian Voivodship, Poland.


The Teodora and Izydor Gulgowski Kashubian Ethnographical Park - so is the official name of the museum - exhibits collections of buildings and artefacts from 17th till 20th century from regions of Kashubia and Kociewie.


The folk museum in Wdzydze Kiszewskie was established in 1906 and it is first an open air museum on Polish land.


Its founders Teodora and Izydor Gulgowski bought the 18th-century cottage of a rich peasant. The cottage and its furnishings were the beginning of the rich collection. The collection consisted of typical of those times household and farm objects, precious headdresses decorated with golden embroidery, glass paintings and pottery.



Nowadays area of the folk art museum is built up with 49 objects of regional architecture. Carefully renovated cottages, manors, a school, smithy, windmills, churches, farm buildings, craftsmen’s workshops and faithfully reconstructed interiors furnished authentically, testify the richness and variety of rural art of  Kashubia and Kociewie.



The museum is opened all year long. It is located 16 km from Kościerzyna and 72 from Gdańsk on the territory of Wdzydze Landscape Park.

  25. Aren't Open Air museums the best kinds of museums? One really gets the idea how people lived in those times. we were in Poland at the end of the 70ties, so I am pleasantly surprised at the well-to-do interior - would this a middle class, or more of an elite house? Also like the inside of this church -quite different from West. Europe (am originally from Holland as you may recall). Thanks you so much for sharing this museum trip with ALL SEASONS! Have a fantastic week!
