Local name: Górnośląski Park Etnograficzny

The heritage park consists of about 70 historic wood buildings. They were built in the folk architecture style typical of the Dąbrowski Basin and sub-regions of Upper Silesia: Podgórze, Beskid, Pszczyna and Rybnik, Lubliniec and the industrial region. The Upper Silesian Ethnographic Park in Chorzów lies on the wooden architecture route of the Silesian Voivodeship.

The Upper Silesian Ethnographic Park in Chorzów was founded in 1975. On the 22 ha belonging to the heritage park there are dozens of wooden buildings and among them: cottages, sheds for animals, shepherd's huts, barns, pigsties, granaries, wells and shrines. In addition, in the heritage park there is a forge, a turbine windmill, a reconstructed old bread oven, a mill, an apiary and a dovecote.

Most of the monuments in the park is from the nineteenth century. An exception is the church dedicated to St. Joseph the Worker from Nieboczów, dating back to the 18th century.
