The museum covers an area of about 60 hectares and includes more than 300 historic buildings, most of which were transported from their original locations throughout Hungary to be preserved in the museum. The buildings date back to the 18th and 19th centuries, and they represent a variety of different architectural styles, including peasant cottages, barns, and churches.

Visitors to the museum can explore the different buildings and learn about Hungarian life in the past. Many of the buildings have been furnished to look like they did during their original use, complete with traditional tools, clothing, and furniture. There are also demonstrations of traditional crafts and trades, such as blacksmithing, pottery, and weaving.
