Peasant life museum in Bielefeld was founded in 1917. When Russian labourers and peasants saw the life abroad they made a revolution.
The expositions of the museum tell about the village mode of life in the XIX century. Among the exhibits: windmill, bakery, barn, flax brake (in the Middle ages Bielefeld was known as one of the leading flax producers).
