The museum is mostly suitable for children who can use all their senses- they can smell and identify spices, play a 'birds' piano, create animals masks and many other fascinating and enriching activities. Crowded on weekends. A must for families with kids visiting Winterthur

Must do this with kids. In the cellar there is a room that simulates the movements of a vintage commercial sailing ship and shows products that where imported. The exposition is somewhat eclectic in parts but it sure is worth a visit.
