archaeology museum in the franconian open-air museum bad windsheim

The museum focuses on the prehistoric and early historical development of the region, in particular the development of settlements. Visitors are taken on a journey into the past: To the early Middle Ages, when houses were still chattels and counted as movable property, to the Roman period, when the south brought unusual luxury to the country with stone buildings, glass windows and heated floors and walls, to the Celtic period with city-like, extensively farmed settlements and to the Stone Age, when cattle and people lived together under one roof in buildings up to 50 metres long.

The archaeological village is located in the immediate vicinity. The three accessible houses - a ridge post house, a pit house and a stone foundation house - have been renovated and can also be visited. 

A catalogue has been published to accompany the exhibition.
