Exhibition on horse collars

The horse collars were used to distribute the tractive force when clamping a horse or other draft animal.
On display are splendid horse collars for the wagons that delivered the wine from the Weinviertel to Vienna, but also simpler pieces for agricultural vehicles and plows.
In the adjoining room you can admire some sledges from aristocratic property as a supplement.

Clay building exhibition

This exhibition shows various clay building techniques as well as their cultural-historical and climate-technical significance. The focus of the presentation is a piece of clay wall, which was transferred in a whole piece with clay, plaster and lime paint.
Clay used to be regarded as a building material by poor people, but today it is increasingly appreciated and promoted for its environmental friendliness and climate efficiency.
