Museum of Thuringian Folklore

The former hospital director’s house accommodates the Museum of Thuringian Folklore, one of Germanys largest folklore museums, which has a wealth of exhibits of rural material culture: furniture, household items, tools, textiles, glass, ceramics, jewellery, religious objects and folk art and craft. The centrepiece is the exhibition "Erfahren-verändern-beharren. Dorfleben im 19. Jahrhundert" (Learn-change-persevere. Village life in the 19th century) and its "century display case". Another visitor attraction is the residual collection of ceramics housed in the vaulted cellar.
