My wife has been collecting thimbles for years and so we made a side trip from Rothenburg just to see this museum. According to the hours posted on the door it should have been open. It wasn't.

Over 4,000 thimbles from around the world made out of anything you can think of. Definitely you different museum as it is all in one small room out in the countryside (about a mile out of town).

I wasn't expecting to visit this museum but once I saw it, decided I had to go in and look around. I found it very interesting and not your ordinary look at daily life.

What an incredible place for this museum! On a back road opposite a church & little else! A quaint building housing virtually the history of thimbles from different countries. There are also other items of interest.
