The Museum of peasant tools is housed in the barn of the "Lettenhof" barn, built in 1745, with its collection of old farming and domestic tools. Currently on display are various implements for tilling the fields, numerous carts and carriages and tractors, as well as equipment for preparing food in the kitchen and preserving food in the domestic departments. The museum also has a working göpel (a rotary drive moved with the help of a horse) and its own blacksmith's shop.

The cultural service centre of the Upper Franconian district is also housed on the museum grounds.
