At the foot of Babia Góra, on an extensive area resembling a park and around the old wooden manor of the Moniak family, several dozen interesting examples of Orawa folk architecture were assembled.
You can see characteristic Orawa cottages with the so called “wyżka” (a chamber in the attic), as well as numerous outbuildings. One of the most precious buildings, apart from the wooden manor, is the church from Tokarnia. There are 25 exhibitions arranged inside the selected buildings, and they provide an opportunity to learn about the life of various social classes in Orawa villages from the 18th to the middle of the 20th century. The interior of the manor, which constitutes the highlight of the heritage park, has been reconstructed. It partly reflects the style of the Orawa gentry’s residences from the 18th century and partly the condition from the 17th century, when the manor was only furnished with basic equipment and devoid of the chimney. Also of interest are the exhibitions devoted to rural crafts, which are located in the oil mill, the fulling mill (where felt was produced from woollen cloth), the sawmill and the smithy.
