Really interesting museum. Descriptions were mostly in German but the counter lent us a booklet with English descriptions that covers most of the museum. There is also a short demonstration of the musical clocks in German and English which we enjoyed very much. Overall we had a good time and a great place to visit especially so when the weather is not ideal. We spent about 2.5hrs there.
This place is awesome. You should use the black forest card here. Can easily apend here an hour, kids friendly and the even have written info in Hebrew. Parking on the street, make sure you pay using the machines.
