Museum of the Mazovian Countryside The Museum is composed of a Skansen (ethnographic park) outside of the city, and of a 19th-century City Hall in the centre of the town. The open-air museum occupies a beautiful area of over 60 hectares, situated on the Sierpienica river. Over 80 objects of wooden architecture of the north-west Mazovia region are presented in the park, including peasant homesteads (residential buildings and livestock), a tavern, a blacksmith shop, a windmill, a chapel and a church. The pens exhibit folk architecture from the late 19th century and the first quarter of the 20th century. The interiors of the buildings are equipped according to their use, depicting the social and economic stratification of the rural population, from the 1920’s to the 1950’s. Vegetable and flower gardens and fruit orchards were created around the buildings. Plantations and animal farms (with horses, sheep, goats, geese, ducks and chickens) complement the rural landscape, giving it a natural look. The decoration of peasant homes is associated with the annual calendar, and exhibitions also reflect a number of celebrations. A few worth mentioning are 'Christmas in Mazovia' (Boże Narodzenie na Mazowszu), 'Easter in Mazovia' (Wielkanoc na Mazowszu) and 'the Polish Year' (Rok Polski). The Hall (pl. Kardynała Wyszyńskiego 1, tel. +48 24 275 28 26) houses exhibitions of local, regional, national, and foreign cultures. The Museum also organises ceremonial meetings and educational workshops, such as presentations of palm tree products and Easter eggs, St. Andrew's Day celebrations, Christmas workshops, and interesting 'glass painting' ”(na szkle malowane) workshops. Location: 120 km north-west of Warsaw. Bus connection. Branches of the Museum: Museum of Little Town in Bieżuń Text via warsawtour.pl, photos via mazovia.pl D.Krzośniak, mwmskansen.pl
