The local museum Dissen shows an exhibition about the way of life of the sorbian/wendish farmers. In the exhibition the visitor finds exhibits and pictures of the farm, the hard work on the field, the former life of the children, but also of festivals, celebrations and the many living customs. The 20 variants of the Lower Sorbian costume shown are a special attraction. Legends and fairy tales of the Spreewald as well as spinning room stories give insights into mysticism.

The guest can also touch many exhibits. The whole museum can therefore be "understood" in the truest sense of the word. Both children and adults can become active themselves at many of the museum's events. For example, during fairy tale and craft afternoons, when decorating Sorbian Easter eggs, or during stork tours. You can also meet the song poet and storyteller Pittkunings in the museum.
Medieval village Stary Lud

The medieval village of Stary Lud, which belongs to the local history museum, invites you on a journey back to the Slavic Middle Ages. This section of the settlement was reconstructed according to interpretations of finds and features both regionally and supra-regionally and takes visitors into the world of the Slavic Middle Ages. A small settlement with 5 pit houses, which gives the impression that its inhabitants are just on the way in the field - the weaver's weaver's loom is clamped, dyed wool and clothes hang to dry on the leash, the potter's wife has a half-finished pot on the potter's bench, in the holy grove small offerings are laid down and the smith still smokes the fireplace. The times are peaceful, the weapons and the chain mail are cleared away in the house of the warrior to find. In all pit houses the visitor sees what was important for a family to live about 1000 years ago.
