I do believe we have gone too far, that technology and the desire for luxury have become too dominant and that we need to turn back to a simpler and more honest life. Places like these can show us how, if we chose to listen to what they have to tell us....
The only thing we have to figure out is how to combine the best of those two worlds.
This museum has a great variety of subjects and exhibitions, ranging from 18th century style town square with wooden houses over a medieval style church replica to farm buildings of several eras.
They moved the old townhouse, a shop, an old tannery, a weaving mill and other buildings and unfortunately these buildings are not open to visitors nor are they operational.
Luckily for us others were, like the old school and there was even a "teacher" present and he was more than willing to show us how kids in the olden days were "educated". We even had the chance to try the old way of learning how to write. First with the fingers in sand, so we could get used to the letters, then with a slate and stylus and then with a dip pen and ink.
Another living exposition were 2 maidens, showing and telling how to make butter the old way and we got to try some freshly made butter too, which they just had done. We agreed that we had never tasted better tasting butter and it really is a simple procedure, which requires a bit of time and effort. For us the hunt for a butter churn is on now!
