The Veselý Kopec site is made up of small farm buildings dating back to the times from the middle of the 19th century to the middle of the 20th century, brought to the museum from various parts of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands.
There is also a remarkable collection of water-driven technical structures to be seen here, including a mill with a plum jam making room, a bark mill, an oil press and a sawmill.
