I was raised on Struwelpeter, in the original German version. So I found this museum fascinating. Especially the treatment of Hoffman's characters by all sides of 2 world wars. There are dress-up areas with costumes for kids. Unfortunately, all of the extensive displays and commentary...More

One of the more unusual museums to visit with a huge amount of background and all the different versions and translations of the Struwwelpeter story. A huge range of the books and other items available to buy from the giftshop.

If you still don't know about Struwwelpeter, this is a great chance to catch up with it: in a building with 3 stories you manage to not only know something about the author , but also about the Struwwelpeter, the different translations to other languages...More

I have a slight obsession with Stuwwelpeter, so finding out there's a museum was awesome. It was super informative, not just about Stuwwelpeter but also about Heinrich Hoffmann and how Stuwwelpeter has become ingrained in culture. Be warned that most of the museum is in...More

It's the first time I've heard about Struwwelpeter and his scary and bizarre children's stories that have been translated into many languages. This museum's displays tell you of his creator, Dr. Heinrich Hoffman, and features the original artwork in the books.

This museum is a real "gem" for children and adults who have grown up with Struwwelpeter. There is a very informative introduction about the versatile life of Dr. Heinrich Hoffmann. One can see lots of drawings, Struwwelpeter books translated into lots of languages and also...More

Something for all ages - you can play games based on Struwwelpeter, dress up, see original illustrations and how the book and responses to it have changed over time. There's also a section on Hoffman's life and work. Most of the labelling is in German,...More

Walked from the city but unfortunately the museum was closed. My mother also read me this book and I would have loved to see inside! It looked great through the window. Close to the palmengarten though so we spent the afternoon there instead. Next time...
