Jean-Frédéric Oberlin Museurn
The collections kept at the Oberlin Museum, at Waldersbach, testify to the 59 years of ministry during which Pastor Oberlin (1740-1826) endeavoured to set up a new society in a remote valley of the Vosges region. His goal was the education of man in his own environment.
Jean-Frédéric Oberlin’s pedagogical and educational work was the foundation of his nursery schools and elementary schools. In 1769 he founded the first « knitting-rooms» with the guidance of «the leaders of tender childhood», the children would open their minds at their own pace, and develop their bodies through physical exercise while participating in activities such as knitting, drawing, creating herbariums in a child-appropriate way.
