Step back in time, into an authentic home of Nida’s fisherman’s family to experience the intricacies of the unique coastal way of life that sustained Curonian families for centuries. The traditional wooden hut is sitting on the shore of the lagoon on the southern side of Nida, in the now non-existent village of Haken. Built by local artisans in 1927, it features two semi-detached buildings.

 

After suffering damage from drifting ice in 1968, the museum homestead and its outbuildings were restored to its current state in 1973. The interior now houses an exhibit of the typical household and its daily happenings in the Curonian Spit of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

 

The original fishing tools, farming and craft materials and many other everyday items mirror the humble lives of village fishermen. Visitors can admire artefacts of traditional crafts of wood carving, pottery, shoemaking, weaving and others.

 

Two genuine fishing boats adorn the garden and a copy of the Curonian sailboat - kurėnas - can be viewed near the lagoon shore.

 

Catch a folklore theatre showing, a folk concert or an ancient craft workshop, which are run regularly in this museum.
