Is located on the territory of the former villa of Franz Lonshan, who was a city mayor and at the same time a head of the Lviv Masonic lodge. During the visit of the Austrian Emperor Franz Josef to the residence, Lonshan tried to make a good impression on the important guest and renamed the forest around his house in honor of the Emperor.

He called it Kaiserwald that means the forest of the Kaiser. The decision to create an open-air ethnographic museum on this territory was already made in Soviet times.

Nowadays it is possible to see there, how the old buildings and everyday life of the inhabitants of Eastern Galicia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries looked like. They illustrate the three main ethnic groups of Western Ukraine - Boikos, Lemkos and Hutsuls.

The museum has interesting exhibitions and presentations. You can visit a gastronomic presentation or a variety of master classes. This place is especially spectacular for visitors in autumn.
