This place has far more than it appears to from the street. Lots of historical exhibits. Our teenagers enjoyed it and learned a lot.

Music "boxes' / players are very cool. The history of the area and overall Germany is very very interesting. Definitely worth visiting.

Right next to the information building. you could spent quite some time going thru all the different levels. The room with the caliopi and music boxes was the most interesting set i have seen.

While walking around town, we found this shop. There are more cuckoo clocks here but of a cheaper quality. There are many items to browse. It is a small store, but worth your time to check out.

To be honest we weren't very sure about this place. But we gave it a try and we really enjoyed ourselves. Make sure you bring some EURO change so that you can use it to play the calliope machines. They were pretty adorable.

We went through with our two teenage children. It was really interesting and lots of things to see, but a bit disappointing that you had to pay extra if you wanted to see certain displays actually work.

After coming out of the waterfall by a back way, we were right at the museum. Our KONUS card got us a small discount. Exhibits on straw item manufacturing (baskets, etc.), clothing, mechanical musical instruments, and of course, clocks. There was also a nice mineral...More

From the outside it doesn't look like much. Co-located with the visitors center, it is easy to find. Once inside you will find room after room of interesting displays. There are clocks, musical machines, and a lot more. Worth the visit.
