The building recalls the atmosphere of the 1920s and presents how our ancestors lived and what tools they used in their everday lives. The thatched roofed house in the middle of the village was built at the end of the 1800s with the joint effort of the locals: they built a staff house for the smith of Nagykovács. The house was planned for the bank of the Zala River as the water is indispensable for cooling the wrought iron. In the cottage all kitchen utensils can be seen which were used by our ancestors one hundred years ago. In the yard you can see a contemporary cart that was drawn by cows and a jig working with wind that was used for cleaning grain before milling or sowing in the past.
