Events at The Open-Air Museum
An idyllic summer's day at The Open-Air Museum
During the open season, The Open-Air Museum offers a variety of activities and events. The different offers include something for every taste and every age group. The events are spread across the season, and several of them are adapted to the particular time of the year. For instance, the Lime-washing, Half-timbering and Thatching Day takes place in May, as lime-washing should be done before Pentecost; the Tradesmen Day is held in the autumn, as this was when people had the time to carry out repairs of different kinds; and we hold a food fair in mid-June, where fruits and vegetables are in abundance.
With the many different events, the museum always tries to maintain a relevant historical link to The Open-Air Museum or to the history of agriculture. The old houses form a fantastic setting for the events, and a perfect backdrop to the old tradesman techniques, foods, steam engines and, not least, the story of it all.
