Information for your visit


Please observe that the museum can be closed contrary to its opening times in case of extreme weather conditions. Our service team is happy to inform you of current changes.

You are welcome to bring your dog. Under consideration of the visitors and the animals living on the grounds, please keep your dog on a leash and dispose of any dog’s mess.

Smoking and all use of open fire is not allowed on the entire museum grounds for fire protection reasons. Smoking areas are provided at the gatehouse, the funfair and in the dairy farm garden.

Sanitary installations are provided at the gatehouse, the “Winkelscheune” restaurant, the funfair and in the dairy farm garden.

Car park situation

Parking spaces are provided for the visitors - also during the construction of the current entrance and exhibition building. Normally, a park-and-ride service is provided for large events. We kindly request our visitors to make use of this or to use public transport.

Guided tours, adventure programmes, children’s birthdays and further offers

General brief free guided tours are often held by a voluntary employee. Please ask at the counter.

Please also observe our free special Sunday guided tours about diverse topics (see the programme below).

Experience historic handcraft live

Visitors repeatedly have the opportunity to experience historic handcraft live at certain times (please ask as applicable) at the Open-Air Museum Molfsee. Thus, it incorporates several historic workshops which are used in-part by artisan businesses and associations. Further information is available here.

Food & beverages

The open-air area has a café, a bakery and a kiosk which ensure the visitors’ culinary well-being. The restaurant in the “Winkelscheune” is also opened for larger events. Further information on the gastronomic offer is available here.

Also observe the museum guesthouse Drathenhof’s offer, it is located directly next to the open-air area.


Unfortunately, the open-air museum’s grounds and the historic buildings are not fully accessible. However, we are making constant efforts to improve the circumstances. Thus, you will be able to experience our new exhibition and entrance building which we plan to open in 2020 easily and without any restrictions.

If needed, wheelchairs are available at the counter. If you like, you can also explore the grounds with our museum train. We recommend always visiting the open-air museum with an accompanying person. Moreover, the grounds house a total of four handicapped-accessible WCs.

The museum has two designated parking spaces for the disabled. Also there is a Kieler Verkehrsgesellschaft [local public transport company] bus stop directly in front on the museum entrance.

If you need any help, you can always approach our on-site employees. You are also welcome to contact us prior to your visit by calling (+49 (0)431-659 66 22) or via E-mail (

Winter break for the Open-Air Museum

The Open-Air Museum houses must remain closed in winter for conservational reasons. However, the open-air area entices the visitor to take a stroll. The museum will open every Sunday from 11am to 4pm until the end of March 2019.

That is why we have reduced entrance prices during the winter season: Adults 3 euros (reduced 1.50 euros).

In case of hard-packed snow and black ice, the museum remains closed. Our service team is happy to inform you of current changes.
