The creation of the forecastle is actually a great coincidence. Originally, the land next to Pořešín Castle was to be parceled out into small plots on which a whole new cottage settlement was to grow. The whirring of mowers from three sides of the castle did not seem optimal, so when Radek Kocanda learned about the possibility of acquiring the land, the association promptly bought it. After the discovery of the medieval water dam, a plan was drawn up to use the land to establish an open-air museum, where endangered wooden buildings from all over southwest Bohemia could be transported, and also to raise sheep. Today, the castle grounds have become the headquarters of the association of the Lords of Pořešín, who have their own facilities for a range of activities connected with life in the Middle Ages. The castle has been open to the public since 2021.
