I have visited open air folk museums in Scandinavia and of course we have our own Welsh National Folk open air museum in Cardiff. This open air museum compares well with them but on a smaller scale. The museum covers an area of a few...More

I've been to similar places elsewhere (Skansen in Stockholm springs to mind). First off, you can't fault the price. €7.50 for adults, under 18s free. The transported and rebuilt buildings range from 15th century to 20th, but are mostly 18th. You're not really allowed to...More

We wish we'd planned twice as long here... we were still enjoying ourselves when closing time came! If you've been to other open-air museums, such as Old World Wisconsin, Colonial Williamsburg, or Hessenpark by Frankfurt, you'll have some idea what this is like. It's fascinating...More

This park shows the life of the ordinary German though out the time. This is a museum not an entertainment park. So there is load of information on the buildings. With displays on the customs and habits of the different regions. Because we visited in...More

I enjoyed my visit to this museum. The houses are well kept, though many are very dark inside so if you can't see well I would be very careful! Part of the museum was cordoned off for renovation unfortunately but the area is huge and...More

This place is unique. The Museum has taken actual old houses and brans from the Medieval times from all over Germany, and transported them to this great open Museum, with guided tours, live animals, and amazing trail walks ideal for short hikes. The place is...More
