In the extensive museum area around 60 historic buildings from rural areas of Upper Bavaria have been rebuilt on 38 ha, including next to larger farms and craftsmen and peasant farmers, in which more than half of the population lived in the 18th/19th century. Another focus is on peasant technology such as whetstone making, mills, saws and blacksmiths. In addition, several alpine buildings have been built.
