This Hummel Museum originally began as a house in 1875 and has been always owned by the Hummel family. It wasn’t until 1994 that one room of the original Hummel house was transformed into a museum where guests could view hundred of Hummel figurines and associated artworks. Not only filled with hundred of hummel figurines, this Hummel museum was the birth place of Berta Hummel, the artist of childhood scenes in which the later figurines were created to represent.
This museum is set over two levels and has a wide spread of hummel related items- hummel figurines, hummel dolls, original photographs, artworks by Berta Hummel and pieces from Berta Hummel’s life and family.
Today this museum offers a variety of different exhibitions along with Hummel figurines and artworks that visitors can purchase in an attached hummel shop.
