Museum of Kysuce Village Nová Bystrica

An open air museum in Chmúra valley. It was founded in 1974 to preserve the most valuable monuments of folk architecture, especially those from the flooded villages of Riečnica and Harvelka, which disappeared due to the construction of the Nová Bystrica reservoir.

The exposition also includes residential and farming structures, as well as a pub, two mills, a timber mill and a chapel from other villages. It offers a view of the architecture, culture and way of life in Kysuce in the past century. Visitors can find original furnishing in the interiors of the buildings.

The ethnographic exposition is open from May to October.  On Sundays, the museum offers a variety of programs regarding traditional production techniques and family traditions performed by local folk groups, ensembles and bands.
