  • The Museum is overall good and both a visit to the Museum is suitable for a weekend getaway in the summer, but especially the Christmas market value. The location Gets a full recommendation from us.

  • Really, this Museum offers something for everyone! Like the great restored buildings which blend naturally into the landscape of the Mäckingerbachtals. Others like the lovingly crafted furnishings and decorations of the buildings. The shown machines and production processes are valuable for technically interested persons. The well-made, many events are also worth a visit. I like the "total package". I always like to visit this museum.

  • I'm warning to think this is just for parents with small children. Not at all. The open-air museum is great, offers something for everyone. Of course, should be present some interest in old mechanics/engineering or the life of the "past", but the tour itself, spacious and very beautifully, is already of high quality. A great - and certainly one of the most attractive investments in Germany.

  • 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.
