Every room in the museum is a marvel: there are over 5000 exhibits. It is open daily but for Mondays and stretches over three adjoining half-timbered buildings.

Lovely museum, we used the self guided audio tour. Perhaps we might have enjoyed the tour with written descriptions, simply for the sake of time. The displays were well organized and authentic. The building itself was also beautiful.
