The wooden construction enclave of the Beskid Museum was opened on 6 October, 2010. It consists of a smithy (with an exhibition of tools and a reconstruction of original blacksmith’s workplace), a reconstruction of a typical peasant’s cottage with some furniture and utensils, a pastoral collie and an old apiary.
The history of the enclave goes back to 1980s and to Mr. Jan Krop, then the head of the museum. It was his idea to move the old peasant’s hut which belonged to Szarzec family from Wisła Jonidło to the nearest neighborhood of the museum and the old school in the centre of Wisła. Today the project is continued by the present museum manager Małgorzata Kiereś. All three buildings, along with the area among them, house a very lively exhibition of traditional art and culture of Silesian Highlanders.
