I am not a particular fan of open air museums, but my wife is. We enjoyed very much our trip to the Molfsee museum, it was very interesting and enjoyable. There are interesting exhibitions within the various buildings of the museum. The snack bar (Imbiss)...More

Never heared of it, but glad we found it any way! Were impressed how may old farm houses and other feature from a historic country side they arranged together. A bit pity is, there is no clear line about era, things ‘belong’ there and create...More

We were surprised at the size of the museum outdoor space and number of the buildings displayed. We spent three hours and I'd love to come back for 5 hours next trip. We visited on a weekend with many local vendors of crafts, foods, garden...More

The open air museum in Molfsee/Kiel is rather big. There are all in all over 70 small and big buildings. The bigger ones are fully furnished and give the visitor the feeling of traveling through the time. You can see how people used to live...More
