After making an appointment, we visited the museum, and it was an eye-opener! I had no idea there were so many and such different cuckoo clocks. The guided tour was excellent, with many examples of the clocks working and being demonstrated. I can recommend this...More

A hidden treasure offering one of the most unusual auditory experience. An old school house filled from floor to ceiling with a flock of cuckooing birds, each perched on an exquisitely carved antique clock.

WOW what a great place to visit. Roman and Maz the two brothers that own and run the museum where really interesting and welcoming. They restored my clock which looked beyond repair to amazing working condition. Will be going back to visit again.
