And Then There Was Metal
May 2019 • Couples
This is an excellent museum displaying aspects of jewelry through the ages. Ancient gold to Etruscan up to contemporary jewelry there are many interesting items. Gold, stones and enamel are the focus. Watches are also present as are non metallic forms of jewelry from Africa and South and Central America. I give the displays a 5 and the jewelry is 4. If you are involved in or just love jewelry this is definitely worth a visit.

Craftmanship through 5000 years

Visiting the jewelry museum was a wonderful experience. Even ancient jewelers were incredible artists.
Enjoy the craftmanship and see some tools, too.

the museum had four main exhibits with lots of jewelry in each. they were all so beautiful and nicely organized. it would have been nice to see some local pieces, as pforzheim is known for that, and most of the jewelry in the museum were imported.

If you like jewellry, this is the place to go! Located within the city park, it also offers a nice café to enjoy some home-baked cake and sip a cup of cappucino.

Amazing jewellery presented beautifully!!!
Aug 2016
Yesterday a friend invited me to visit this museum. We spent 2 - 3 hours there - could of happily stayed longer but had to leave Pforzheim. When we finished our tour, I was totally elated from all the beauty I had seen. This is the magical effect of beauty. It uplifts our soul.
The items are presented in chronological order, depicting the history of jewelry and there are some magnificent pieces from Mycenae, Egypt, Asia Minor and Persia - to name a few. The lighting and presentation is superb.
And, I was overjoyed to find a room full of ethnic pieces lent to the museum by the couple Paul and Eve Herion. Being a collector of ethnic jewellery myself, I was totally in seventh heaven!
Unfortunately, there were very few visitors inspite of it being a Saturday morning. This is a real shame as visiting this museum is such a highlight and so much worth the stop. Even the entrance fee is minimal - 3E= really low compared to the value of the collection one has the opportunity of seeing.
I strongly urge all visitors or even inhabitants of Pforzheim to vsit this treasure. A great effort must have been put into creating such a wonderful display.

Nice displays

This is a great place to visit. We went on a rainy day ant it was worth it. There was parking across the street, pay at the meter. The displays had some English translation. There was a good historical representation for the jewelry.
