We were luckily enough to have a tour with a woman from the Grassmayr family. She showed us how the bells are made and a giant sound bar with water that allows you to feel the vibrations from the sounds. I recommend this for children as well as adults. The showroom has bells and brass figurines available to purchase.

I honestly did not expect to enjoy this museum, but I loved it. The first part of the museum is mostly bits to read, but then after that there is lots of interactive things to do. We visited as a group of adults, but I think that children would also really enjoy this museum - and all of the noise... More

Not many bell companies in the world. This one started in the 1500's and is in the same family still. 14 generations. Pay for a tour it's only a couple of Euros. They were working on a bell when I was there. I usually avoid gift shops but this one is unique.

An absolutely fascinating insight into the world of bell making, which has changed little over the centuries. The tour takes you through the various processes leading to the finished article. You can even ring a number of the bells yourself, which some youngsters were doing with gusto. They have a vast selection of bells for sale in their shop, and... More

Fascinating museum with history of bells and bell-making. Very small museum but the variety of bells you can try ringing is amazing. Kids complained about the visit but had a great time ringing the bells, driving the salesgirl nuts. Could not resist buying two bells made by Grassmayr as they were beautifully made & rang nicely.

We liked this place and we're glad we stopped. I've never seen an exhibit as unique as this one. Bells have been around a long time and because of that have a very rich history. Not busy at all.

Not a very popular place, and few knew about this. The museum essentially is a part of a foundry / factory that still manufactures Bells....We loved what we saw....And it was a short 40 mins. The Hop on Hop off dropped us to the Basilica Wilten, and we walked for 5 mins (courtesy an amiable local who directed us), and... More

Nice small museum with different bells and the explanatio how the process is made, with the exhinition as well as with a move projected. There is an interactive room where you can hit the bells yourself and put a hand into a ringing bell placed upside down and filled with water to feel the vibe. There is also an old... More

Really fortunate to have Frau Grassmayr show us some key points of this super and unique museum. Really interesting to learn how bells are made, and how the process has changed little over the years. Definitely worth a visit, easy to walk from the station or on the sightseer bus. Aladdin's cave of a shop too!

Let me tell you this: Although I've heard church bells ringing probably hundreds of times growing up in my hometown in Germany, I never spent much thought about the process behind crafting a bell. Well, until now. I don't know whether it was our overly charming guide (and part of the Grassmayr family) Elisabeth, or the impressive visit of the... More
