Children's waggons for all
If you are on a day out with children, all their stuff and maybe also the kitchen sink, you may want to borrow one of our waggons, which are available against a deposit payable at the admissions desk.
Dogs are welcome!
Please keep your dog on a short lead - out of consideration for our livestock and rare breeds such as stoats, hedgehogs and songbirds which all live in and around the open-air museum just as they would in a traditional village.
Smoking is not permitted in the museum's buildings or anywhere on the grounds!
Please help protect our historic buildings, animals and plants.
The Nordheide Freifunknetz network can be used free of charge in the ‘Spielwelten’ exhibition and the Agrarium.
