This child-friendly Open Air Museum focuses on industrial techniques and technical life of 18th- century Westfalen-Lippe. It’s the only one of its kind in Europe.

The 60 exhibits and workshops give visitors unique insight into the old art of things like book printing, nail forging, and food producing. One of the unique features at this museum is that they connect the past techniques with current styles.


Don’t forget to visit the shop for handmade products demonstrated in the workshop.

Tours are available in English. Please visit the website for information about the tours, opening hours, and admission prices.

Insider Tip

Be sure to save the first Advent-weekend of the year for the Romantic Christmas Market at the museum. The unique atmosphere and non-commercialization of this event is worth experiencing.
