The hands-on topics include: grains and rye bread, making butter, flax and flax products, eggs and poultry farming, honey, potatoes, a horse and other farm animals, and practical lessons for the technologically-minded.


Different handicrafts can be practiced at the Museum. There are a blacksmith's forge, wood carving workshop, weaving and paper processing workshops in the Workshop Gallery. Visitors can also take lessons and courses (e.g. blacksmith craft, restoration of wooden furniture, etc) or practice wood craving, making paper, designing cards, and so on.
