Exposition Traditional folk culture with touch brings to the visually impaired and blind visitor’s selected topics connected with the life of our ancestors in a village at the turn of the 19th and 20th century.

The rural environment at the end of the 19th century was a place where the traditional folk culture based on life in the past centuries was maintained and documented in detail. Although in the 20th century, as a result of large transformations, folk traditions began to fade away, many speeches and documents of folk culture, particularly in the area of customs and customs, remained part of our lives. The exhibition presents products and working tools of folk craftsmen, examples of traditional folk songs and costumes, as well as examples of legumes, cereals and herbs that were used in the preparation of dishes.

Interested parties can also explore the model of a wooden three-piece four-storey house of the village type. Any visitor can get acquainted with objects representing a folk culture. In the area of the exhibition, there are eye masks, with which the visitors can go through the exhibition with a touch and bring the world of blind and visually impaired visitors closer. Part of the exhibition is the accompanying catalog Traditional Folk Culture with touch in Braille and black print.
