ROLE OF THE KOLBUSZOWA FOLK CULTURE OPEN-AIR MUSEUM IN STUDIES OF TRADITIONAL WOODEN ARCHITECTURE OF THE RZESZOWIACY ETHNOGRAPHIC GROUP
Languages of publication
Province is located in the south-eastern corner of Poland. At the beginning of the 1970s, as the result of an initiative drawing attention to the need for documentation of the rapidly disappearing traditional Rzeszowiacy vernacular wooden architecture (and that of the neighbouring ethnographic group, the Lasowiacy), the Folk Culture Open-Air Museum in Kolbuszowa was created. This paper presents a short overview of the open-air museum’s establishment and describes in detail its role in the study and protection of the wooden architectural heritage of the Rzeszowiacy ethnographic group, based on the museum’s research, carried out over fifty years, and its collection of buildings.
