Near Nová Bystrica, a part of Vychylovka in the Chmúra valley, which is part of the Kysuce Protected Landscape Area, there is an open-air museum, the Kysuce Valley Museum. The open-air museum was established on October 11, 1974, as a result of the construction of the water reservoir Nová Bystrica. The relocation of buildings from the areas designated for flooding with water saved many monuments of folk architecture from the villages of Riečnica and Harvelka. The exhibition includes 34 items, mostly residential houses and farm buildings, an inn from Korn, two mills and a brick chapel from Zborov nad Bystricou. There is also a narrow-gauge forest railway in the open-air museum. The exhibition presents not only architecture but also culture and a true picture of life in Kysuce in the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century.
Both Czech and Slovak filmmakers have repeatedly chosen Kysuce as their filming location. Films such as "Želary" (2003), "Latający mnich i tajemnica da Vinci” [”The Flying Monk and the Da Vinci Mystery"] (2010), "Letnie drzewo radości” [”Summer Tree of Joy"] (1983) and "Sen Jaska” [”Jaska's Dream"] (1996) were shot here. The director of the film "Želary" chose the chapel of Our Lady of the Rosary as the filming location in the open-air museum. The open-air museum was also used to make the film "Latający mnich i tajemnica da Vinci” [”The Flying Monk and the Da Vinci Mystery"], which tells the story of this hermit's life. In the shots in which brothers Cyprian and Marcin run to the village to check what happened to their brother, you can see frames from the open-air museum. You can see objects that are outside the exhibition. In the film "Letnie drzewo radości” [”Summer Tree of Joy"] there are mainly shots of the interiors of cottages located in the open-air museum. In the film "Sen Jaska” [”Jaska's Dream"] we see a sawmill and a mill located in the open-air museum.
