the Ballenberg Open Air Museum.
What began in 1978 with 16 characteristic Swiss buildings, is today an
extensive exhibition with about 100 residential and agricultural buildings
from all over Switzerland, on a 66 hectare large area: this is the
Ballenberg Open Air Museum. The historic buildings and their kitchens,
chambers and living rooms illustrate rural life in Switzerland.
But Ballenberg Museum really comes to life thanks to the original and
authentic cultivation of useful plants, the over 250 domestic farm animals
and thanks to the craftsmen and farmers who work with traditional tools.
Thematic exhibitions and special events about culture and customs
complement the offerings.
