The traditional occupations of Kashubians have been agriculture and fishing. You can learn about their history in the open-air museum which is located in a 19th century farmstead.
A typical three generations house, a barn and a cowshed with a coach stand are the main buildings in the open air museum. There’s also a draw-well, a pigeon-house, a treadmill, an apiary, a vegetable garden, a smokehouse and a wood fired bread oven. In the house you can see typical house and economic devices dating from 1900. The barn is a weave construction, whose skeleton consists of a mixture of chaff and whitened clay. It houses an exhibition on beekeeping in Pomerania. In the former stables a harness and mangers are exhibited. In the pigsty is a collection of joinery and wood tools. During summer, the garden boasts its variety of colours and scents.
Worth seeing are also the fisherman’s cottage, the fisherman’s barn and the historic fisher boat because after all water is the symbol of Kashubia.
When you are in the Wejeherowo district in July you should visit the folklore festival “Krancbal” organised by the open air museum. In turn the holiday of the Kashubian beekeepers takes place in September.
