In 2018 I conducted field research in 70 schools in the Biłgoraj poviat in the Lublin region of Poland, examining the way of cultivating tradition and transferring the memory of the history of the region through the creation of museum and regional museum and memory museum at schools. It turns out that Ethnographic Museums exist not only in large cities, but in a huge number in small towns and villages - in schools - the only, closest cultural center of the village. Some museums collect over a thousand atrtifacts, which is extremely impressive for such small towns and village. In these "small museums" take place lessons of history and special events. These places are especially important for students with disabilities who, unlike hard to reach monuments from the "real" museum rooms, can touch objects and look at them closely, and even participate in creating such exhibitions themselves. As part of the meetings, students learn about their region, its traditions, monuments, culture and history. These places are therefore an alternative way of teaching history lessons, as shown by the results of field studies particularly popular in small schools located in villages. The paper presents photographic documentation of such museums and the way they are used in the education of children and youth.
