Cloppenburg Museum Village

The Cloppenburg Museum Village and Lower Saxon Open-Air Museum (German: Museumsdorf Cloppenburg – Niedersächsisches Freilichtmuseum) located in the Lower Saxon county town of Cloppenburg is one of the oldest museum villages in Germany.

Covering an area of about 20 hectares (49 acres), the museum portrays the history of rural life in the Lower Saxony region from 16th century to the present. Over 50 historic buildings, with their associated rural gardens and surrounding agricultural fields, illustrate the relationship of man to his environment over the course of time.

Unfortunately the weather was quite bad when I was there. The sun was hidden behind dark rain clouds.
