Part of the exhibition is also to show you how people used to live. Real life people work in the farm houses and show you different crafts. For example you can discover an oil mill, where people still press grain and seeds for oil. You can even taste the oil and see what different oils were used over the centuries. In other manors they display weaving and you can see how carpets or traditional clothes are made. And of course in such a museum there must be someone painting Pysanky – the Ukrainian Easter eggs.
