Exhibitions

Exhibits of objects and pictures about the history and culture of the region, the usage of equipment and the historical aspects of living in a rural area are displayed on the ground floor and the upper three levels of the Münchhausen Barn, in the Arkenstede manor and in several of the buildings at the open-air museum.

Permanent exhibits offer insights into the ample treasures in the museum’s collection. Special exhibits present topics and scenes about historical cultural issues and problems. Agricultural technology using tractors, equipment for working the acreage and harvesting machinery are presented in the Helmut Ottenjann hall on more than a thousand square meters of the overall area.
