It is called a Christmas museum but only had a small section with some history of Christmas decorations and how they evolved. Not impressive. The shop is however quite nice and has a very good collection of unique Christmas decorations.

Pleasantly surprised. The museum describes the history behind many different Christmas and holiday traditions. They include many examples from Germany and around the world. Examples included are trees, ornaments, advent calendars, greeting cards, and lights. There is a modest admission charge.

So amazing. Even though we arrived already dark since it was winter, I was so happy to see the Christmas village museum. I saw the wonderful world of Christmas in different themes. I visited this place in my bucket list
