The museum of the Liptov village differs from other open-air museums. Its unique composition created out of a settlement relocated due to a damn construction represents historical and cultural environment of Liptov and focuses on depicting everyday life of diverse socio-economic groups from the old days. It is a reconstruction of a medieval settlement granted town privileges and rights. In addition to traditional wooden residential and agricultural buildings representing the typical features of folk architecture, you can also admire two rare medieval stone buildings. The Gothic-Renaissance manor house from Parížovce is the oldest preserved gentry residence in Liptov which dates back to 14th – 16th century. It is associated with the King Matej Korvín and his son Ján Korvín, the Prince of Liptov. The Gothic church of the Virgin Mary relocated from the flooded village of Liptovská Mara, holds an interesting exhibition showing off fragments of original murals from the 14th and 15th centuries. The upper part of the museum complex offers a possibility to view a static exhibition of the historic forest railway from Považie region.
