    One of the archaic villages remained in good condition and was renovated to be a museum for visitors. The museum was founded in 1970 in order to protect the settlement of Õrség area. The Authority of the Vas County Museums purchased 10 buildings, most of which were built in the first half of the 19th century. One house was transferred from Szalafõ Papszer, so that a sample can be seen of the oldest type of the houses in the Õrség region.

    Most significant objects:
    - two-storey lard (beginning of 19th century)
    - fenced dwelling house (beginning of 19th century)
    - appliances and home facilities

    The buildings were furnished according to their original functions. Most of the items had been the property of the inhabitants, so these can be seen in their original places.

    The museum is open only from 15.03-30.10.: Tue-Sun 10-18 or Mon-Sun 10-18.
    Charge is 400 HUF/audult (cca. 1,6 EUR) and guidance is available in German and English.
