Being a fan of outdoor museums such as St. Fagin's in Wales and the one local to us at Detmold, we had to check this one out too. Here we learned that the idea of rescuing historical buildings by dismantling them and rebuilding them on a new site originated in Scandinavia. If you have visited outdoor museums before nothing here... More

The Museum was recommended by our hosts and it had featured heavily in tourist literature so we chose a walk from the Bahnhof in Bad Sobernheim to the Freilichtmuseum to finish off our great holiday. Entrance is a reasonable price and we were given maps to find our way round. The buildings offer a really good insight into life in... More

I dont quite understand the meaning of this place. The houses you see in the cities are even older than this. It is all a mess of Things from different times.

Visited on a cool, wet October day but enjoyed the day. Due to the time of year little was happening but still an interesting experience. I think that with the various activities that take place at other times it would be an excellent place to visit. Not as extensive as Beamish in Northumbria but if you are in this part... More

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

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 park setting and refurbished to their former glory. Visiting a freilichtmuseum gives you the opportunity... More

Went with my wife's German relatives. It's like a mini Williamsburg...except the range of buildings are from various regions. Spend at least several hours and they do have a nice little cafe where we ate outside. Staff very friendly too. The site is self guided with information in English on the various buildings. 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
