On its grounds stretching for about 42 ha, not only are urban and rural trades just &quotdisplayed&quot along with their workshops and tools, but in a lot more than twenty of the almost sixty rebuilt workshops, they are nevertheless practised, and interested visitors can, sometimes by themselves, take element in the production.

As early as the 1920s, there have been efforts by a group of engineers and historical preservationists to preserve technological monuments for posterity. The initiator, Wilhelm Claas, even recommended the Mäckingerbach valley as a excellent location for a museum to that finish. The narrow valley was chosen, as wind, water and wood were the 3 most critical location factors for business in the 18th and 19th centuries.

In 1960, the Westphalian Open-Air Museum was founded, and thirteen years later, the gates opened to the public. In contrast to most open-air museums, which show each day life on the farm or in the country as it was in days gone by, the Hagen Open-Air Museum puts the history of these activities in Westphalia in the fore.

Crafts and trades demonstrated at the Westphalian Open-Air Museum incorporate ropemaking, smithing, brewing, baking, tanning, printing, milling, papermaking, and considerably far more. A favourite attraction is the triphammer workshop shown in the image above. Once the hammer is engaged, a craftsman goes to perform noisily forging a scythe, passing it among the hammer and the anvil underneath in a method referred to as peening.

The Hagen Westphalian Open-Air Museum is open from March or April until October.
