Very nice and neat museum, I highly recommend going there. You will learn so much about the town's culture, including clothing, music, artifacts, etc.

The displays of musical instruments was fascinating. The exhibits are educational and entertaining. Try all of the automatic, self-playing instrument displays.

Husband and children were very leery about visiting a museum while we were in the Black Forest. However we did not get disappointed by this one! I do recommend paying the one or two euros to make the amazing and beautiful player pianos work.

A little disappointed as there was nothing to help non-German speakers and finding your way around was a nightmare. Having said that it has a very eclectic collection of Black Forest paraphernalia ranging from clocks, music pieces, housewares, sporting equipment, fashion, rocks and cakes. Some...More

It appears small from outside but is quite large inside. There are many good exhibitions in this museum. Too bad it does not have enough English descriptions for people who do not know Germen.
