Nature in the museum
The Open-Air Museum Molfsee provides a home for several wild and domestic animals as well as for indigenous plant species.
On the museum’s meadows and fields which are only cultivated extensively, you can find the odd wild herb, which has become rare elsewhere, next to flamboyant orchids.
The groves and woods on the museum grounds are home to a large number of tree types such as oaks, copper beeches, alders, hornbeams, elm trees and wild cherry trees. Here, the blackthorn, hawthorn and crab apple should not be forgotten. In and around the museum ponds, frogs and other amphibia romp about. Moreover, the numerous open lofts, corners, niches, cracks and protrusions belonging to the museum houses provide swallows, bats and owls ideal living conditions.
