A topic of our museum is the exhibition of original houses built in Franconia lasting from the late middleages. Every first week in october we celebrate the so called "Mittelaltertage"(medieval days) several groups wearing historic costumes, dwelling in houses which were built 500 to 800 jears ago.

In this environment we will show the roots of chemistry and her ugly daughter called alchemy.
