Awesome museum! I visited August 3, 2017, so I'm not sure if things have changed much, but it was a nice change of pace from the loud city and you learn much about the history of rural and manor life in the Rhineland. The tour guides are very friendly and want to chat about what you see, and the informational signs are in German and English. The animals and architecture are great, and they have places to eat, although if I recall correctly the quiet museum restaurant had an incredibly rushed waiter, the most flustered one I've ever seen... I had a radler and a big piece of red meat.
If you like walking and historical architecture and pretty countryside then you are at the right place. Just a marvel of a place. Well worth it. Also local food, ie breads,cakes and meats available at the eateries there.
