According to the model concept, a marketplace is the central element in the urban layout of the museum town. The wheelwright’s workshop, local gaol, school and barns have all been transferred to the museum. Other buildings are replicas with some reconstructed elements. The surroundings of buildings are carefully reconstructed. It includes some elements of small architecture and various types of surfaces used for pavements, roads and squares. The Museum town represents the historical diversity in the construction of buildings and materials as well as their functions. It serves as a relic of past generations living in towns, and invites the visitors to get acquainted with their lives.
