The National Open Air Museum affiliates four institutions – two in Moravia and two in Bohemia – that document, protect and preserve vernacular architecture and interpret the way of life of people living in the countryside over a period of two hundred years from the middle of the 18th century onwards. Each of these institutions reflects the culture of a different region, which makes them quite remarkable.
We would like to invite you to take a walk in modest Wallachia, fertile Haná, mountainous Vysočina and the mysterious Sudetenland. Discover stories of ordinary people against the backdrop of everyday events and great moments in history. Compare their lives with your own and join us in discovering the legacy of our ancestors. This legacy is not just forgotten history, but also contemporary inspiration and valuable lessons for our own times.
