It's a small museum but you can spend 1-2 hours easily. It would be an asset and more consistent if all descriptors could be in German and English. Tip: cloak room and lockers available to ensure a bag/jacket free visit

Went to the museum with my wife and we were both impressed with the amount of times that they had and how big it actually was. The beginning of the museum had descriptions of the items in English but most did not. Hard to complain...More
