The museum staff has always worked to make the Skanzen a place to enjoy. As a result of this hard work, today the Open-Air Ethnographic Museum provides several ‘extra’ services.
In order to get a truly realistic picture of Hungarian village life centuries ago, we need more than the sight of static buildings and objects – it is also important to get to know the everyday life of living people. Thus, craftsmen work in the courtyards, peaceful lambs graze in the grass, the fragrance of herbs spreads from the kitchen, and, among other things, you can learn about the preservation practices of the time. Each of the active sites of the Skanzen are pretty exciting and many of them transmit knowledge that is useful to this day.
Don't let the fact that you’re with children deter you from visiting the Skanzen. The exhibition has ample attractions for the little ones: the so-called children's points of interest are designed to make the visit intriguing for them with various crafts activities, storytelling and puppet theatre.
