In Czeh: "Skanzen lidové architektury". At the outskirts of the chateau, at the old foundations of the castle, an additional settlement: an ensemble of traditional structures of the “foothills of the Bohemian Forest”. These structures stood no chance to remain at their original locations and so they were moved to this location. Data on the history of these structures and technological details related to their transfer and retention are described at the information panels next to the individual buildings. Since 2009 this small open-air museum was open to the public, currently only the exterior can be seen, no guidetours. The project’s activities contain not only reconstructions, renovations, scientific and ethnographic research, digitization of the collection items, construction of new vernacular buildings according to preserved technical documentation, construction of specialized handicraft and restoration (conservation) workshops, preparation of expositions, presentations of crafts and about the life of earlier inhabitants. The main contribution of the support is that it enabled the salvaging of the cultural heritage objects that would be lost for future generation. The houses and buildings which were erected mostly existed only in the form of the extant blue‐prints, rebuilding these structures means the revival of the cultural and historical heritage of national and also international magnitude. Realization of the project will preserve ancient technologies which are nowadays not generally known, these technologies will be presented via live workshops and presentations. The Open Air Museum is a constituent of the European Vernacular Cultural Heritage and is one of a few museums where the Carpathian vernacular architecture is preserved and documented. Visitors will be allowed to try out old technologies via interactive components, history by via a “living museum”: lecturers will play the roles of inhabitants of the buildings. The multimedia presentation will capture the attention of visitors and especially of schoolchildren and students. The museum also cooperates with the technical school in Valašské Meziříčí (students preparing their projects with experts from the Open Air Museum), Silesian University in Opava (ethics and guide work) and the Masaryk University in Brno (dissertations on vernacular architecture and technologies).
