Belarusian State Museum of Folk Architecture and Rural Lifestyle is an open-air museum or in other words a skansen museum. This term presupposes collecting relics of the past that are of historical and cultural value and exhibiting them out-of-doors in natural surroundings. Regional and local peculiarities gathered together in one place are demonstrating traditional folk culture of our country. Belarusian skansen has an ethnographic profile and is an object of republican importance.

Only on 9 December 1976 Belarusian government adopted a resolution № 367 “On founding the Belarusian State Museum of Folk Architecture and Rural Lifestyle”.
Initially the museum complex was supposed to contain 250 exhibits and 50 000 museum items, industrial & economic area, objects of engineer support, museum's road network and elements of rural beautification.

During 1987-1994 three exposition zones were opened to public, namely “Central Belarus” and “Paazierje” (Lakeland). Nowadays the museum collection, displayed on the exposition zones, contains 40 exhibits, some of which are under restoration.
