Excellent museum - very interesting and surprisingly interactive. The site is a working manufacturing plant, so that is interesting in itself. Watch the movie, depicting the process of making the worlds largest bell, it is really fascinating. My 10 years old son enjoyed it much...More

Really interesting little museum. Doesn't take more than an hour, depending on how much you read when you visit a museum. Lots of interesting information panels about the history and manufacture of bells - in several languages. And lots of bells to look at -...More

Conveniently located along the Innsbruck 'hop-off' bus route, it's free to visit with a valid Innsbruck card. Exhibits and videos explain how massive bells are moulded with bricks and clay, decorated with beeswax and cast with molten metal. Visitors will find it hard to resist...More
