This museum features a number of building s relocated from throughout the region and rebuilt. Inside are exhibits matching the building, such as toys in a house, a butcher shop with historical prices, and others. Signs outside the buildings are in English and French as well as German. This museum takes you in and out many buildings and requires considerable... More

This is a great museum. I differ with the last review, because they do have demonstrations and people walking around in period costumes. Of course you have to go on the weekend, and not during the week if you would like to see the museum in action. However you have to also remember there are more people on the weekend... More

There are about 40 buildings and some... More

Parts of the museum are just flat, but if one wants to see all, it will be rather a climb. It is devided into sections, which do not look alike at all. Great museumsrestaurant, yummie food! The old sir at the entrace was extremely slow, changed our entranceticket a few times, but was very friendly, so he is forgiven. Do... More
