Sierpc is a small town located at the far north-west of Mazovia region, some 120kms away from Warsaw. There’re not too many interesting sights to see but the Museum makes up for it big time. Founded almost 40 years ago now is a home to over 80 architectonic pieces, such as a church, a windmill, manor-house or simple houses together with all the surrounding buildings that were used back in the XIX/beginning of XX century. The whole area is huge and visiting it takes a while but it’s not a wasted time!

My walk around the Museum was like a travel back in time. I felt like I’m transfered back over 100 years and I could get to know the rural life back then. It was definitely an interesting journey and I learnt so much in these few hours (and also figured out how ignorant I’ve been…). Thanks to this visit I also developed a small interest the open-air ethnographic museums and I’m already planning to visit few more here in Poland in the next months!
Now let me take you for a walk around the picturesque, old-times Mazovian village
