  • Hagen is notoriously dasTOR to the sauerland region and thus it is also already in the topic of this important Museum. OM open-air museum are a number of historical buildings dating from the middle ages to modern times, closely associated with the early industrialisation and crafts of the region. Of course with the hydroelectric power of the rivers and thus drive in metalworking and the forging specifically. Be sure to visit

  • Definitely worth a visit. Very interesting also for children as much about the old crafts there is to see. Once at the top there is the possibility to buy freshly baked bread of stone oven (very very tasty). Especially the romantic Christmas market is one of the highlights in December. It will be distributed over the year but offered other actions

  • Clean and well organized museum. Therefore a bit of the authenticity is gone
  • A wonderful place with a variety of interesting amenities!
  • Super
  • Children and adults were satisfied. There is much to see and discover. There are small demonstrations at various stations and it is very well explained. Questions will be accepted. We found some progress the ROPEMAKER. Our 8-year-old stepson has felt it is not quite so comfortable. Otherwise all in one very nicely done.

  • It is one of the museums that I simply gerbe visits. Very cozy atmosphere, some performances that are interesting for the younger and great opportunities to relax. The selection of food and drinks - beers in particular - should be also mentioned. A visit is recommended for all ages.
