In the large open-air area with its farmhouses and craft workshops there is much to explore for families with children. Grandmother’s and grandfather’s stories appear in a new light here. The old farmhouses have no electricity, running water and heating, not to mention TV sets and computers. But the floorboards creak underfoot, the old kitchens smell of soot and smoke, the water splashes in the well outside the house, the carriages, tools and devices arouse curiosity while the mill wheels are clapping, clipclap, clipclap.
The farm animals are a special attraction, from chicken, sheep and pig to donkey. The museum pond has frogs, fish and wild ducks to discover. The historic bowling lane and other game stations distributed over the grounds such as hopscotch, hoopla, hobby horses and building blocks invite to play and have fun. In the beehouse there are quiz questions for children and for the right solution the kids receive a small reward.
- A family ticket makes the visit even more attractive for families: admission for children and adolescents under 16 years of age is free.
- Nappy-changing facilities are available.
- The open-air site is only partly accessible to pushchairs.
