The museum is in a beautifully converted nineteenth-century barn in a large green space in the centre of the village of Kammern. It shows the agricultural and industrial history of the region. The themes covered by the museum are connected especially with mining, agriculture and the making of charcoal. The agricultural traditions of the region are shown by hand tools and utensils that were part of daily life, and a threshing machine. Many other objects given or loaned by people are also on display. The museum has an exhibition about the geological history of the earth over 500 million years, with rock samples and fossils.
