Very nice and interesting BUT take with you a person who speaks German. I got an IPad with some information in English but only 20-30%were translated. And many employers who speak only German! Disappointing for a such museum!

We love visiting this with the whole family. Lots of great hands-on information. My boys loved to be able to try out things and learn about different types of work. Glad it had a little Cafe to take my parents to as well.
