Let there be Light!

Even 100 years ago, chips of pinewood, tallow candles and kerosene lamps were used for illumination. Here you can make practical experience in using different light sources and prepare a candle all by yourself at the end.

Enjoy your Meal!

The focus is on nutrition. The question will be about stockpiling of animal products: How were eggs, milk and meat stored and preserved without refrigerators in former times? We will make our own butter by means of a butter churn and then enjoy it together with fresh bread.

Wheat and Chaff

Here the focus will be on grain as an elementary foodstuff. On a tour around the museum – from the fields over the mills to the house for baking bread – growing and processing of grain will be illustrated and individual steps of operation will be put to the test.

Flax and Weaving

How can linen be produced from a plant? We will process flax until flax fibers ready for spinning are produced. After spinning with the hand spindle, a weaver’s workshop will be visited.
