Work & Manufacturing

The wall at the end of the room is devoted to the topic of work. The basis of the display is our handicraft collection which contains around 120 chests, pots, tankards, signs, signets and flags as well as craftsmen tools. The dominant factor of pre-industrial production was the guilds, associations of craftsmen (bakers, blacksmiths, milliners, tailors, millers, carpenters, etc.) who controlled, among other things, the education, training and pricing policy of its members, but were also active in the field of social welfare and quality assurance. The guild chests on the right side of the room played an important role for the individual guilds: elaborately designed, the guild’s coat of arms as well as other important documents, letters, etc. were kept in here.

The following room is devoted to our music and religion collections.
