Museum - Kashubian Ethnographic Park in honor of Teodora and Izydor Gulgowski

The beginnings of the Museum Wdzydze Kiszewskie go back to 1906. Its creators, Teodora and Izydor Gulgowski were founders, first on Polish soil, a museum “on open air”. They opened it in the eighteenth - century peasant cottage, which they bought from a local host – Michal Hinc. There they gathered, the typical for that time, household and farm, and a valuable collection of gold-embroidered traditional hats (czepiec), paintings on glass and ceramics.

Scientific activities and social passions of the founders of the Museum led to the development of local handicrafts and discovered the beauty of Kashubian folk art, which lies in the intricate and colorful  Wdzydze's embroidery.

Currently, more than 100 - years, the museum has 22 ha area situated on the shores of Lake Gołuń built facilities of regional architecture. Cottages, manor houses, school, blacksmith shop, windmills, church, farm buildings and workshops - 45 objects Kashubia and Kociewie demonstrate the richness and diversity of rural architecture from the period from the seventeenth to the twentieth century. Faithfully reproduced the interior with authentic furnishings, equipment run time and industries characterize the area, unusual climate, picturesque location and magnified qualities of the surrounding nature.
