Village museum with content-related inclusion of neighbouring communities

Building / plot situation

The Sacro Village Museum is located in the former home of Reinhard Natusch's parents-in-law. The one-storey dwelling house with a gable roof is a farmhouse already built of solid bricks, gable-ended to the village street on a former three-sided farm.


The local chronicler Reinhard Natusch has collected and continues to collect evidence of everyday village life in the northern districts of Forst (Lausitz), whereby the villages to the east of the Neisse River are expressly included in the collection and research efforts. A fund of original historical photographs from the surrounding villages is of interest. Five rooms in the house have been prepared for exhibition purposes, whereby the basic structure has been largely preserved, which lends a certain authenticity to the kitchen in particular. So we have a folkloristic collection here, which particularly seeks to establish its links to Sorbian / Wendish history.

Special exhibitions / accompanying offers

There are 2 special exhibitions a year. Thematically, they seek regional references and flank the intentions of the permanent exhibition.

Occasionally, events such as lectures and discussions are on the programme.

Larger actions are organised for the revived "Village Festival - Sacro".

Offers for children - With Kobi to the museum

Kobi - the little house ghost - is at home in the museum. He lives there in a slipper under the stove. At midnight, he eavesdrops on the old museum pieces when they tell stories about the past. He tells these exciting stories to the museum staff, who then pass them on to the children - stories from the old, old days.

On the trail of Sorbian/Wendish customs

The village museum has brought together evidence of everyday life that documents the village way of life in the communities north of Forst and east of the Neisse River. The folkloristic collection is particularly relevant to Sorbian/Wendish history. A collection of original historical photographs from the surrounding villages is also interesting. On the upper floor of the museum, which is a half-timbered building, you can see a bedroom from 1900 as well as festive costumes worn by men and women from 1805. A tour of the upper floor, where exercise books from 1805, books from 1850 and a historical school blackboard are on display, provides insights into the Prussian primary schools.

The offer takes place indoors and is aimed at schoolchildren.
of classes 1 to 10.
