The museum has beautiful bells and an interesting hands-on portion where one can strike the bells to hear the different tones as well as the differences based on the metal. There is also a viewing window where the work is done.

It is not very big, but it is a chance to see how bells are made, you may actually see it happening, if not watch the video.

After hearing of this museum we decided to go to see it when in Innsbruck. It is about 10-15 minutes slow walk from the edge of the old town. There is a guide to tell you about the museum and a short film. It was...More
