2008: In Fahrt und mopsmobil (In driving and mopsmobil)
Under the motto "On the move. Love, death, speed", visitors experienced different facets of mobility in the first theme year 2008. Vehicles such as a wedding sleigh, a hearse, a fire engine from Opel, model "Blitz", or a carriage of the Lippe princely family were staged on the trails in the grounds and in the historic houses. The special exhibition in the village of Paderborn was dedicated to the relationship between man and vehicle, which is still exciting and contradictory.
A second special exhibition in 2008 entitled "mopsmobil - how the dog moves the world" gave insights into the moving and moving relationship between man and dog in the former pheasantry. Dogs used to serve as workhorses, today they move the hearts of people and a whole industry with consumer products for four-legged friends. The exhibition was developed in cooperation with students from the Department of Folklore / European Ethnology of the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster.
