Teodora and Isidor Gulgowscy began creating the museum in 1906. Kashubian Ethnographic Park is the first open air museum in the Polish lands. The final result of transaction with the host Michal Hinc, was a purchase of the eighteenth - century “gburska” cottage and the exhibition activity could start. Gulgowscy began to collect various types of equipment for home and farm use. They also managed to gain collection of gold-embroidered bonnets, painted glass pictures or ceramic products. It is thanks to Teodor and Izydora that Kashubian beauty of folklore art and handicrafts was extracted.
Currently the museum, whose output is over 100 years of experience, occupied space of  ??22 ha and connects to the shores of Lake Gołuń (which is the eastern arm of Lake Wdzydze) what promotes tourism and recreation when visiting the complex. Museum brings together a number of objects of wooden architecture: the cottages showing the conditions under which of residents Kashubia and Kociew lived, manors, an old school building with  equipped old classroom, smithy, windmills, church, in which takes place traditional Kashubian mass every Sunday, outbuildings and workshops. It is worth to visit this place any time of year due to a nature that changes the place in the spring, summer, autumn or winter. It can be assumed that the summer season is initiated during the Easter time, when the museum invites you to exhibition about the bright habits and rituals. One of the bigger events attracting crowds of tourists is a long weekend in May. During this weekend in the park are organized numerous cultural animations to bring closer tradition and culture of the region's inhabitants.
