“Hidden gem, worth a visit”
Reviewed November 21, 2010

The Shmuckwelten is worth a visit for the English speaking visitor to Pforzheim; all displays are in both English and German. The museum has informative and interesting sections on the grading and making of pearls, the grading of diamonds, the geographical location of precious jewels, the processes for making gold and the unique aspects of the Black Forest, including traditional dress and Cuckoo clocks. The temporary exhibit was a fascinating collection of photos of Elizabeth Taylor in her glory days. The exhibits are beautifully displayed, well cared for and the staff are friendly and helpful.
There was a family with children visiting at the same time as us, and though there are not activities geared specifically towards, the children seemed to be enjoying themselves.
