Description: A little bit farther from the downtown, in a special milieu lies the Göcseji Village Museum opened in 1968. The country’s first outdoor folkmuseum was arranged around a historic water mill and along the backwaters of Zala, the river crossing the town. The collection of buildings was moved to the site from 22 settlements in the Zala region and a typical Göcseji settlement from the 19th century was reconstructed in the area of the village museum, where visitors can also get to know the everyday articles for personal use that are typical of the region. On the upper floor of the reception building of the museum, which building resembles historic halls typically owned by members of the lower nobility, you can see the standing exhibition entitled ‘The national costumes of the Carpathian Basin on dolls’. The Outdoor museum adjoins the Finno-Ugric Ethnographical Park, which displays the architecture, interior decoration and life of people belonging to the Finn-Ugric language family with the help of their typical houses, original fixtures and articles for personal use.
