The museum under the opened sky is structural subdivision of the National preserve «Davniy Halych». It is on the territory of old city of Halych, on the first line of billows of defensives, opposite the natural boundary of Prokaliiv’s garden. This ait of folk architecture acquaints visitors with architecture and way of life of habitants of Pricarpathian region at the end of the XVII-th century and the beginning of the XX-th century. The buildings which are on the territory of the museum testify about the originality of Ukrainian folk architecture and at the same time about his indissoluble relations with traditions of the building culture of slavonic people. On the area of 4,5 hectares buildings of micro villages of four ethnographic districts of the Pricarpathian region is presently completed: Pokuttya, Hutsul'schyna, Boykivshchyna and Opillya. Each of these areas is skillfully planed in microrelief of locality, brought in order by small architectural forms. There are many ethnographic relicts – articles of life and way of life of our ancestors in the interiors of sights. Many architectural exhibits are given not as farmsteads – architectural ensemble of dwelling-productions of a rural building of the past, but as single typical standards of housing, economic and production buildings. Presently 11 architectural sights which present the different types of housing and economic building are set in a museum. The region of Pokuttya is represented by a traditional Pokuttya farmstead of the end of the XVII-th century and the beginning of the XX-th century (transported from the village of Torgovytsya in Gorodenka district) which consists of house, basket for corn, well-crane, gate and so on. There is a collection of the tableware in a Pokuttya house (dishes, pots, mugs and jugs).
