The museum was very close to our Hotel, and the outside displays caught our eyes. I was a bit taken aback by the 5 EUR donation to enter the place, but it was freezing cold outside and we wanted a place to warm up a...More

This is a small but wonderful museum. Worth going in and meeting Mr. Hammond. The museum also is a great spot for events i.e. small weddings etc.

Interesting cool displays. Quite a small museum and out of the way. If nearby, worth a visit. 5 euro per adult, 3 euro for student.

This is a small, but well-cared-for museum. The displays are mostly of packages. I had hoped to see more packaging equipment. The largest downside for me was that I do not speak German. ALL of the explanations on the displays are in German -- which...More
