A typical Styrian home.

What was recognized as an often typically designed Styria house half a century ago, has later on been transformed into a museum. The open air museum still preserves the Subpannonian folk architectural heritage and the cultural tradition of the people who lived in the areas south of Boč and Donačka mountain from the 19th to the mid-20th century. Since 1999, it has been declared a cultural monument of national significance due to its exceptional features (cultural, ethnological, historical and landscape).

An authentic experience. Rural romance.

Some facilities are original and have been transferred to a museum from nearby villages, and some are reconstructed along the lines of existing surrounding buildings. The museum consists of: a residential house (the birthplace of the poet Jože Šmit), an economic building (barn), a pigsty, a wonderful hayrack from 1892, a toilet on the plop and an interesting typical Pannonian fountain. A slightly newer creation is a blacksmith, a retail ' LODN ' (from the German word ' Laden '), the Viničarska House (The Vineyard House) and the Beehive.
