More information

The museum shows how people in the past two and a half centuries lived in the villages of Vas county. The peasant world of old ages and colourful ethnographical and natural heritage of the western border can not only be discovered in form of permanent exhibitions, but it is handicraft workshops or museum lessons, as well as seasonal fairs and folklore events making it a real experience.

The open-air museum attempts to give back the atmosphere of old villages. The placement of the houses reflects original conditions, the enclosed buildings were aligned streetwise, the houses of dispersed settlements were rebuilt at shorter distances. The building complexes reflect traditional peasant housing and living culture, as well as their way of living as a real village. The semi-circular alignment of its street shows the Croatian and German minorities, as well as regional units of the lowlands of Vas county. The artificial hill shows the dispersed settlement s of the Őrség and the Slovene vend region. The southern slopes harbour a row of wine-cellars, typical for the hillsides of the South-West-Transdanubean region. The second step in the planning of the village museum focuses on the establishment of a real image of village, subsequently there will be a row of streets at both ends of the semi-circle, thus creating a cone-shaped village centre.
