Great museum telling the history of Christmas, with some amazing displays of old decorations. Easy to walk around with English descriptions. Beautiful shop to look through before or after.

We paid to visit the museum attached to the shop and were glad we did. There were ornaments, trees, and Christmas traditions displayed from many countries throughout the generations. Very cool.

This was a nice warm break for us on a very cold day! The museum is interesting, but a bit dated and in need of a refresh.

We paid the €4 as it was summertime and the city was busy. The museum was quiet though and we enjoyed seeing all the old decorations. It was enjoyable.
