The Radom Village Museum is one of the most interesting Polish open – air museums. It is not a place, where dust covers exhibits. Here you can see rural rhythm: grain and potatoes growing, bread leaven is grown and kitchen pots are made.
The Bread Festival and the Potato Festival are parts of the vivid and intense folklore and rural tradition with its popular dance floor.
Apart from seasonal holidays, there is a lot happening here. Tourists can wander around the village of 32.5 hectares, where are real wonders of architecture are gathered. There is an 18th century manor house and a historic wooden church, the largest windmill complex in Poland , the water mill and peasant farms from Jastrzębie, Kłonówka and Chomentowa.
While walking through the open air museum, you can see 80 examples of former rural architecture and there are still another 22 buildings awaiting for assembly. The entire collection is completed by over 16 000 movable exhibits, including collection of vehicles, agricultural machinery, hives and beekeeping tools, fabrics and folk art.
Some of these miracles can be seen in the Filip Bajon’s film „Przedwiośnie” with Mateusz Damięcki starring. It was here, at the Radom Village Museum, according to the director „a place with not much of the open – air climate”, that some scenes were shot – the Chłodek farm near Nawłocie, where Cezary Baryka were meeting Wanda and the scene
with the priest at the Karolina’s grave. The charming, shingled manor house, made of larch logs, is one of the most interesting exhibits of the place.
