If you are interested in local culture and tradition, you will be satisfied. It's worth spending an hour there especially if it's raining.

I would recommend to visit this museum as you will learn the history behind the style of Zakopane houses, while at the same time having a chance to see the interior of a house, and different pieces of art.

This is an obligatory stop to anyone who wants to learn something on Zakopane style that was a first national style created at the end of 19th century by Stanisław Witkiewicz. Just great!
