The Museum of the History of Agriculture in Volhynia ( Ukrainian Музей історії сільського господарства Волині ) is an open-air museum in Rokyni near the Ukrainian city ​​of Lutsk .

The museum opened in 1979. In the late 1980s, the museum director Olexandr Seredjuk decided to expand the museum with an open-air section. The museum operates an almost self-sustaining economy with a closed economic cycle. Employees sleep in the houses and take care of the agriculture. Visitors are invited to take part in agricultural work. In 1889–1991, twelve historic buildings, including a farmhouse with stables , a barn , a windmill and a well, were transferred to the museum. A wooden chapel was reconstructed according to drawings and consecrated on Ascension Day .
