Silvermuseum is very nice little museum with beautiful jewellery, tableware and other things made of silver. The museum shop should be better. Not so much to buy.

Excellent museum that provides good insight in the use of silver over the centuries. From everyday use e.g dining, tea up to modern contemporary design. Activities fir children as well as live young designers in action.

Free to visit and really an enjoyable way to understand silver smithing. As a tourist, this museum enhances the experience of buying or enjoying silver pieces.
