  • Reconstructions of buildings from the stone age (old -, media -, Neolithic), through the bronze age to the early middle ages are on the grounds of the open-air museum. In addition to the buildings, there is a wood plank way with carved wooden idols and a reconstructed fortification wall. The reconstructions make history for non-archaeologists understandable and very interesting! Temporarily actors revive the Museum ("living history"), which show medieval living conditions and work techniques (E.g. blacksmiths or potters) in historic raiment and explain. Groups (children and adults) to diverse topics take guided tours can be booked at the Museum. Individual visitors can borrow a museum case and with the contents including producing fire or the flour grind is trying. The open-air museum is located right next to the Teutoburg Forest, there are great hiking and jogging tracks of the Museum. I look forward to the special event 'Viking days'.

  • Nice, small open-air museum, inviting total quite manageable, but to greater confrontation. Negative rather unfriendly Lady at the box office during our visit Whitsunday 2017 we noticed, which reacted peevishly (of course she can not decide it, but the question be descriptive) discount for an unemployed on the question and when asked for directions to the prospectus referred us ("that's why I gave Yes the prospectus you..."). Too bad a friendlier beginning would have made perfect the visit. For the people who presented old handicrafts with enthusiasm were even more touching then, overall it was positive.

  • In an area 1 ha against the edge of the forest is history of about 9500 BC to approximately 1900 to life. Very beautiful buildings on the basis of finds in Northern Germany. Very committed employees. Very nice material use and understandable explanation. Our daughters of 7 and 10 also found it very interesting.

  • Not very big but also not expensive. An interesting walk in the woods.
  • A small nice Museum where you apparently can learn much from the early history. Especially suitable for children. You can make birthday hardly cheaper and more interesting. Very friendly and dedicated staff.

  • Nice afternoon trip, very friendly and competent leadership, the ticket prices are very human. However you need not 2.5 hours for the visit, the lead lasted 1 hour and more than 1, 5 hours you need not to see everything.
