The exposition of the museum consists of bells collected by the Grassmire family. Representatives of this family have been making bells for 400 years. During this time, the craftsmen have developed a unique ebb technology, which makes it possible to make copies that emit melodic sounds. An integral part of the museum is a foundry, where they are engaged in the restoration of old bells and the creation of new ones.

The kids enjoyed the visit too , especially the side activities.
Lovely little museum. Friendly people that love to explain a thing or two about bells and how they are made.
This is a really nice little hands-on museum that is part of the actual bell factory. Nice displays of bells and glockenspiels with the ability for the visitor to play them. Very nice and helpful staff are there to answer questions and assist.
Nice musem and nice shop
Small but soooooo interesting. Particularly good for children as there are lots of bells to try out and things which help you ‘feel’ the vibrations of the bells. You could do the whole museum in around 30 mins - we spent 45 though and cou.. Read more »ld have done more. Brilliant!

I loved this small but very interesting museum! I learned a lot and I had the opportunity to know about the Grassmayr family! ❤️

In short, highly recommended
It is a very nicely curated place. You can touch most of the bells and make them ring. Hands-on experience museum also suitable for kids. ;-)
Fascinating place with activities (different bells for you to try). Lots of history. Downside is that it is relatively expensive for its size
Very interesting museum, informative video about founding bells. Good interactive area where you can play some bells and learn about how they work.
You can purchase bells that have a more poignant sound than any other bell. The tour was very interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
I felt like I was walking back in time! I loved seeing the process of the bell making from the skilled family business for 15 generations.
This is a great experience to see how the bells are made, what makes the different sounds and behind the museum there is a real bells factory with centuries of existence!
