Barn from Dąbrówka Dolna, mid-19th century

It was constructed in 1850s. It is the only barn on the area of the Museum which has a gable roof covered with shingle. The wide eaves is lifted above the gate to make it possible to open it. It is a typical example of a barn constructed as log structure with two haylofts and one dirt floor.

On the haylofts, appliances of an old oil mill are presented, among which large foot-mills used for crushing grains of oil plants and an oil press deserve special attention. On the dirt floor, a two-horse britzka was put, so called 'outgoing britzka' to emphasize the rank and position the miller had in the village.
