“De Sukerei is not about sugar!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This is a developing open air museum close to the small town of Damwald in Friesland. Our group of teachers from Belgium, Italy, the UK and the Netherlands went there on a bleak afternoon in March and found it really interesting, notably because the main building reconstructed on this green field was for the preparation of chicory, a substitute for coffee popular in parts of north-west Europe and more widely in wartime. Two traditional drying ovens have been restored, there is a small room for viewing films of the process and the area in general a century ago, a museum space and of course a small shop and refreshments.
The overall focus is to recreate scenes from 1900. Three typical farmhouses have been moved to the site and filled with appropriate exhibits from the period depending on the status of the family which owned them. There are vegetable plots and an orchard. The next project to be taken on the volunteers is a water-mill.
