Open-air Museum Cloppenburg

KinderFerienLand Lower Saxony

The open-air museum is the oldest one in Germany, designed as a village museum. With some 250,000 visitors per year, it is one of the most popular museums in Northern Germany for a good reason. The work, housing and living conditions of the country population in Lower Saxony from the late Middle Ages to the 1950s are documented here with the help of more than 50 completely furnished historical buildings.

The village museum invites you to spend a nice, informative and diverse day. Enjoy the special village atmosphere and the impressive farmhouses, relax with coffee and cake in the traditional "Dorfkrug" (the village's pub) and enjoy the freshly baked bread from the baker.
