Experiences from 2013

Every winter the sound of knitting needles can be heard in the ‘best room’ at the children’s activity farmyard. The wool comes from the museum’s sheep and is shorn, spun and dyed here. Our expert knitters teach the children how to knit a square. These beautifully coloured squares are then made into blankets.


Experiences from 2012

Last winter, as is the case every year, children learned how to knit at the children’s activity farmyard, under the supervision of our expert knitters. Each year, with the help of over 2,000 children, beautiful knitted squares are produced, which we combine to form patchwork blankets. These are knitted using our own ‘museum wool’.

Experiences from 2015

This winter lots of children once again learned to knit and obtained their knitting diploma in the atmospheric ‘best room’ at the children’s activity farmyard, lovingly aided by our expert knitters. The children knit squares, which the knitters then diligently combine to form beautiful patchwork blankets.

Experiences from 2014

For the third year in a row children visiting over the winter season could tell us who they wanted to receive a wonderful patchwork woollen blanket. Choosing from the 360 different wishes was no easy task, especially as a number of them were extremely moving once again. Some of the wishes related to people who were grieving or living in poverty and could really do with the warm comfort of a blanket like this.

There is so much to see and do at the Open Air Museum that it is virtually impossible to experience everything we have to offer. A tour is a great way to make the most of your visit. An enthusiastic guide will take you back in time and tell you stories that bring the museum’s top attractions to life.
