If you are in Pforzheim this is the number one attraction and should not be missed (closed on Mondays though). There are several galleries, including a historical one showing gold jewellery right back to 1600BC. There is also a splendid collection of pocket watches. Another gallery details the history of Pforzheim's history in the jewellery business - this was a little less comprehensive than expected however. At the time of our visit an anniversary exhibition had just opened showing the creative designs of many local jewellers over the past century - beautiful and fascinating!

Here we learn about the different minerals and stones used in the jewelry industry as well as the history of jewelry itself and its importance for the city and the villages of the Black Forest,

The artifacts on display really showed the history of jewelry and watchmaking in the Pforzheim area. The pieces displayed were quite impressive!

The Schmuckmuseum is always interesting. They have small changing exhibitions that are always well and informatively organized. The permanent collection is fascinating and covers all periods. For anyone who appreciates jewelry and the artistry behind the creations this should be a must see museum.

nestling within a beautiful park in suburban Pforzheim,this was a pleasant surprise.well displayed jewellery covering all ages.I found Helenic and Etruscan jewellery especially beautiful.
small downside: no book dealing specially with the 60s and 70s jewellery which was abundant in the museum.
well worth a visit.
