THE OPEN-AIR FOLK ARCHITECTURE MUSEUM IN SIDZINA

The beginnings of the open-air museum in the hamlet Bińkówka date back to 1963. It was then that the first building was opened to the public – a historic Banasik’s family cottage from 1809, moved here from Sidzinka Mała.

As time passed, the open-air museum was enlarged by the addition of new historical monuments. Currently, apart from the Banasikas’ family cottage, visitors can also see Anna Kozioł’s cottage from Spytkowice dating from 1901, mayor Maj’s cottage from Sidzina dating from the second half of the 18th century, Gałka’s cottage from Bystra from the end of the 19th century, the so-called ‘górka’ or granary from 1897, a watermill, a 19th-century smithy from Sidzina Górna, and a Loretto bell tower from 1937 in Sidzina Wielka Polana.

In the Banasikas’ cottage, visitors may see 19th century furnishings and farm equipment, as well as a collection of paintings on glass; Anna Koziol’s cottage is, among others, a place of temporary exhibitions. In the May mayor’s cottage, tools used by a middle-class family from the 2nd half of the 18th century and a weaver’s workshop are exhibited, while Gałka’s cottage serves mainly administrative functions. In the granary, a historical exhibition is presented, devoted to Sidzina during World War II, especially to the activities of partisan units, very active in the fight against the occupant in this area.

The open-air museum is currently the cultural institution of the Bystra-Sidzina commune.

Skansen jest obecnie instytucją kultury gminy Bystra-Sidzina.
