The open-air-museum of Moordorf is situated on a 3,2 ha big area of peatland. It deals with the colonisation of the peatland based on an edict of cultivation by Friedrich II of Prussia in1765. In contrast to peatland cultivation as it was done in the “Fehnkultur” the Prussian moor colonisation had no support.

The extremely miserable conditions for the cultivation get obvious in the development of the village Moordorf for about 200 years. The museum of poverty shows the living and working conditions: housing conditions, peat cutting, Moorbrandkultur, buckwheat growing, handicrafts and working techniques.

The huts made of sods or pieces of turf, the authentic rebuild houses made of clay as well as the original brick made houses impart the idea of the poor circumstances and the social differences.
