Water – From House Well to Water Tap

31 Small Farm from Rottau

The exhibition in the house-keeping part of the building deals with the supply of drinking water. What is shown is how the people living in the rural areas of Upper Bavaria used to gain water for themselves and their animals in the past centuries.

The first part of the exhibition copes with general topics about water supply, such as the forms of organization in the event of common use of drinking water systems or the conflicts about the introduction of local supplies. The second part of the exhibition explains the different technological solutions used in connection with the water supply of the rural farms in Upper Bavaria.

Architectural and thematic focus of the exhibition is the scene of a well construction site covering both floors of the exhibition building.
