The Hessenpark Open Air Museum HESSENPARK OPEN AIR MUSEUM - Established in 1974 - Total area: 65 hectares (160 acres) -More than 100 houses from the past - Over 200,000 objects from eve The Hessenpark Open Air Museum takes its visitors on a voyage of discovery of everyday life in Hessian villages of yesteryear. More than a hundred buildings from all over Hesse open up areas of adventure to the senses: the cool walls of a 15th century church, hard school benches from the turn of the 20th century, the rattling of dishes in a 1950’s pub. Most of the buildings have been reconstructed using the original materials from the relevant period in history. OPEN AIR HISTORY The special thing about an open-air museum is this: the exhibits are houses, workshops, trees, fields and even live animals. And the visitors? They are right at the centre, experiencing history first-hand through theatrical tours and workshops, and by exploring gardens, barns and kitchens or by dining in a historical tavern.

Tourist information gave me a train and bus schedule from the city - Google maps failed. It was fairly easy, but takes over an hour to the door. Entrance was 8 euros which was nothing for what was on offer. The museum has historic buildings...More

Firstly, to those who gave this low ratings - you clearly weren't prepared and get bored quickly! We spent *7* hours here and could probably have spent longer. Yes, at first we thought 8 Euros to get in was steep, but it was SO worth...More

This wonderfully preserved village is interesting and is very well-done with English explanations and some demonstrations. Medieval renovated houses and farms plus later 19th century museums and displays make it a very worthwhile day's outing.
