Muzeum Wsi Opolskiej w Opolu-Bierkowicach
 Opole Village Museum in Opole-Bierkowice

Muzeum Wsi Opolskiej jest jedynym muzeum na wolnym powietrzu w województwie Opolskim i jednym z czterech położnych w historycznych granicach Śląska. W ciągu prawie 50 lat działalności Muzeum stworzona została bogata plenerowa ekspozycja zabytków drewnianej architektury wiejskiej Śląska Opolskiego, która – w połączeniu z szeroką ofertą muzealną, taką jak imprezy plenerowe, wystawy, konkursy i pokazy – stanowi niezwykłą atrakcję regionu. Dowodem na to jest kilkadziesiąt tysięcy zwiedzających rocznie oraz słowa uznania i pozytywne opinie wyrażane przez nich a także przez grono fachowców zajmujących się ochroną zabytków oraz dokumentowaniem i popularyzacją kultury ludowej.

The Open-Air Museum of Rural Architecture is the only open-air museum located in the Opole Voivodeship, and one of only four such museums located within the historical boundaries of Silesia. During its almost 50 years of existence the Museum has amassed a rich collection of historic wooden architecture from the Opolan Silesia region, which – in connection with the Museum’s wide array of attractions, such as outdoor events, exhibitions, competitions, and shows – makes it one of the region’s most unique attractions. Proof of this can be found in the tens of thousands of people who visit the Museum each year, as well as the many words of appreciation and positive opinions expressed, as well as by the recognition of experts engaged in historic preservation and the documentation and popularization of folk culture.

Traditional Polish Music
Polish folk music was collected in the 19th century by Oskar Kolberg, as part of a wave of Polish national revival. With the coming of the world wars and then the Communist state, folk traditions were oppressed or subsumed into state-approved folk ensembles. The most famous of the state ensembles are Mazowsze and Śląsk, both of which still perform. Though these bands had a regional touch to their output, the overall sound was a homogenized mixture of Polish styles. There were more authentic state-supported groups, such as Słowianki, but the Communist sanitized image of folk music made the whole field seem unhip to young audiences, and many traditions dwindled rapidly.

Polish dance music, especially the mazurka and polonaise, were popularized by Frederick Chopin, and they soon spread across Europe and elsewhere. These are triple time dances, while five-beat forms are more common in the northeast and duple-time dances like the krakowiak come from the south. The polonaise comes from the French word for Polish to identify its origin among the Polish aristocracy, who had adapted the dance from a slower walking dance called chodzony. The polonaise then re-entered the scene and became an integral part of Polish music.

Poland's five national dances
 (Mazur, Polonez, Kujawiak, Krakowiak, Oberek), as well as modern dance, contemporary dance and ballet are all widely performed today throughout the Polonia community.
