due to the current situation connected to the Coronavirus (Covid-19 / Sars-CoV-2)
our Museum will stay closed until April 19th inclusive.
Events also don't take place during this time.
We kindly ask for your understanding.
Dive into the countryside and discover how people lived, built, and worked in Thuringian villages in more than 35 historic buildings. Discover how people lived in a time without modern technology and what lies behind a “black kitchen” or how it was like to live in a wooden living room.
The houses of the museum are from different eras and regions of Thuringia, however all of them are historic, unique, and set up authentically to capture their original style and feeling. Besides big and small houses, we have a rare “Umgebindehaus”, a plant-pot pottery, and the oldest windmill in Thuringia on the museum property.
Allow yourself to feel relaxed and fascinated for a few hours by the wonderful atmosphere of our museum. Find peace and relaxation in the idyllic scenery surrounding the museum. The journey continues in the village of Hohenfelden, where you can explore the old “Pfarrhof” with its changing special exhibitions, the former school, or have a look into the old brewery.
If the journey makes you hungry, we are happy to serve you in one of our two museum restaurants.
Aufgrund der aktuellen Entwicklungen im Zusammenhang mit dem neuartigen Coronavirus (COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2) bleibt das Museum bis einschließlich 19. April vorerst geschlossen.
