“Worth a visit”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

After spending a hour or two here you'll want to at least treat yourself to a local pretzel. As other reviewers have mentioned, this museum not only covers how bread has been made over the years but there are some amazing exhibits detailing the role bread has played in history. If it's a cold or rainy day in Ulm, be sure to visit.

“An eye-opener”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

I had been expecting to find a museum devoted to the history of bread-making, different techniques and grains and so on, which might have been mildly interesting to a non-specialist like myself but no more.

I wax completely wrong.

There is something on the history of bread-making, techniques, grains, etc, but the main focus is on the uniquely important place of bread in human social, political and religious thinking - Taking the bread from our mouths. Bread and circuses. Our daily bread. Breaking bread....

Absolutely fascinating.

There's a lift if you need one, and a small shop downstairs. Very friendly people.

“A different museum.”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

A very interesting museum on the history of bread making on four floors. It's interesting because the displays vary in type; for example, there are written explanations, tableux, hands on displays and a large amount of paintings and drawings on the subject of bread. Obviously it's in German, because it's in Germany, but unless you're a fluent German speaker most of the texts will go over your head. It would be helpful if there was rather more written in English as most Europeans speak and read some English.
