The Museum of Local History is located in the historical centre of Weinböhla near the church St. Marienskirche (Lutheran-protestant church). The museum was opened in the main house of the Historical Wine-growers Estate Weinböhla in 1989. The main house, however, was actually built in 1794 and is, from an architectural point of view, a half-timbered house with a solid ground floor. The whole complex of building dates back to the year 1622.
The expositions at the museum comprise:
The main exhibition hall at ground floor is reserved for special exhibitions. On the first floor, guests of the museum may discover our exhibition of permanent exhibits on wine-growing, on the history of local schools and churches, and on historical toys. The reproduction of a farmer’s house on the top floor gives an interesting insight into the life of our ancestors.
At the wine-growing estate outside the museum, visitors may have a look at our grape-vine nursery while listening to a detailed explanation of one of our wine experts or they may visit the historical wine cellar Peterkeller. Furthermore, the permanent exhibition at the wine-growing estate comprises a number of historical farming vehicles.
