I enjoyed visiting this museum very much. We spent about 4 hours walking, admiring old buildings, having fun with farm animals and remembering a childhood, when our grandparents time to time still used the things we could now see in the museum. The museum looks...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...More

I have a special place in my heart for open air museums - called Freilichtmuseums in Germany and Ecomusees in France. These sprawling museums typically feature many very old buildings (houses, stores, mills, barns) which were scheduled for demolition but were saved, relocated to a...More
