To explore the vast area of the open air museum takes time and energy and after some time you'll get tired.

The good news is that you can recharge by tasting rural dishes offered in one of the museum buildings (the inn from Jászárokszállás) and try the delicious pastries and breads in the bakery of the Great Plain Region (Northern Great Plain, Southern Great Plain). Even better if you take a blanket with you and have a picnic.
