Exhibition of once glorious times

If you like jewellry, this is the place to go! Located within the city park, it also offers a nice café to enjoy some home-baked cake and sip a cup of cappucino.

This is a great place to visit. We went on a rainy day ant it was worth it. There was parking across the street, pay at the meter. The displays had some English translation. There was a good historical representation for the jewelry.

We visited this museum and it was excellent. We spent almost three hours in the museum and we were not sorry for it. Our guide was excellent and kept us interested during whole visit.

Nice museum to visit, interesting to learn about the history of Pforzheim's industry. Right in the city centre, this small museum won't take up too much of your day and you can continue on with a meal or shopping afterwards.

There are several galleries, including a historical one showing gold jewellery right back to 1600BC. There is also a splendid collection of pocket watches. Another gallery details the history of Pforzheim's history in the jewellery business - this was a... More
