  • The museum is in extremely good condition, contains treasure troves of information available both in German and English, *and* the entrance is free of charge. If all that isn't enough already, the entrance makes you go through a beautiful impasse with lots of interesting street art. Definitely recommended.
  • Simple museum that outlines the efforts of a local blind brush maker to protect his blind Jewish employees from the Holocaust, with mixed results. Exhibits in German and English. Takes maybe 15-20 minutes to walk through. Well worth the visit.
