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.

Great diversion for a rainy afternoon. Takes about 40 mins to walk around. Seriously creepy costume room, loads of carvings, bobsled artefacts and playable organs. For €5 you can play some of the organs and there is a great one in the first room. Grumpy...More

This place is just amazing, we visited cuckoo clock factory and ate black forest pastries. This area is surrounded by black forests of Germany and view is stunning.
