Very interesting bell factory. Apparently, it is world famous. The museum is very small. There is an entrance fee. There is a large collection of tools and bells indoors and outdoors. The shop is amazing. It has a very large selections of bells of all sizes and designs. Best way to get there is on the 'Hop on and Hop... More

Small but comprehensive and informative. Learned something new and now appreciate the technical innovation and craftsmanship that this firm has developed over the centuries. Not a bell person but surprised that I now am!

An interesting little place all about bells. You can see the foundry through windowed doors and there are lots and lots of bells to see and an attempt to show you how bells are made... as well as a few to ring! It's only a few small rooms and an outside area and there isn't a lot of helpful information... More

We decided to stop into this famous bell company. We all the church bells, war bells, warning bells and peace ringing bells. Well this company tells its history and you learn how the bells are made also a side cut ti see the layers in a bell. A short video and then into a room where you can discover the... More

We now have a new-found appreciation for bell manufacturing and bell ringing having visited this working museum. You get to learn how bells are made and why they sound the way they do, plus a ring a few bells as well.

I did this on the last day of my 2-week visit to Innsbruck. I read that they charge 50 euros for a tour of the bell foundry, but why pay when you can look through a glass wall into the foundry and get into the museum for free with the Innsbruck Card? I saw a "singing" bowl being made, and... More

We visited the bell museum with our 6 year old son as part of a ski / city break to Innsbruck. The first part of the museum provides some interesting insights into the history & world of bell making. Whilst the second part provides an opportunity to hit some bells and make some noise. Needless to say, the 2nd part... More

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.
