Great Exhibition!

The Blade Museum is housed in a former, beautiful monastery building. It is located in the Gräfrath district, where many beautiful half-timbered houses can be admired.

The museum presents scissors, knives, blades and swords from the history of mankind. If you are interested in something like this, you should definitely plan a visit to the museum.

Awesome for Knife and Swords lovers

You can enjoy a lot of History in this place. Huge collection of pieces and is a must if you love Knives and Swords. Almost everything is in German. They could have more Souvenirs at the store like Knife Magnets and things about the museum.

Cultural and Historical Jouney in Solingen

The Solinger Klingenmuseum "Blade Museum" is unique as it illustrates the development of knife and scissor making in Solingen and in general. Solingen has a history of over 600 years and is world famous for the quality knives and the swords that were hand made for noble knights, aristocrats and collectors of precious weaponry in Europe and the rest of the world.
In the museum you can look at a stunning display of masterpieces of all kinds of blades, swords, daggers, bayonets, scissors, razor knifes and related items and the history of the trade and manufacturing.
The museum is located on a small hill overlooking the historic city center of Solingen-Graefrath, which in itself is worth a visit with all the old and protected tutor houses with their black beams and white plaster looks, lined with some of the best restaurants and hotels in town.

So interesting!

We had such a nice time here: so many interesting artifacts. Loved the museum. The exhibits were very intriguing. The articles and their history totally informative and ingenious. From the largest to the smallest pen knives to the beautiful hand carved knives forks and spoons. If you find yourself in this part of the world this is a museum you should visit. Looks small on the outside but you will be shocked when you go from floor to floor how much valuable content it has. So happy that I passed some time here.

Interesting collection, but needs a serious revamp
Sep 2015 • Friends
Solingen is definitely the place to go if you are into blades and knives and scissors. The museum has an incredible collection, but something really needs to be done to revamp the presentation as it is very dry and there is not much interaction. If you don't speak German, make sure you take someone who does to translate for you.

If you are into blades, this is the place to visit! Not only is there the museum but a bunch of friendly factories to visit.

The folks at the museum were very friendly. They spoke good English and invited us back for that evening's wine reception.

A visit to the Ritter's Hubertus factory was another highlight. Again, very friendly people who were more than willing to show us there facility. They get a 5-star rating!
