In May 2009, the Sewing Machine Museum first opened its doors to visitors. Here, visitors can discover the development of the sewing machine over time.
Rarities such as the Opel No. 1, the Peugeot No. 1, the Krems sewing machine, the fascinating Kerzdörfer, the very early Gibbs and many other rare and interesting pieces are on display at the museum. The collection, which is managed by Martin Mey, son of the museum founder Albrecht May, contains more than 420 rarities that were lovingly collected over many years and form the basis of the museum’s international renown.
