The Geigenbaumuseum (Violin Making Museum) was founded in 1930 and has been housed in one of the oldest and most beautiful buildings in Mittenwald since 1960. The displays highlight the craft of violin making and its development over more than three-hundred years, as well as its links with the history of the local community.
The emphasis in the extensive collection of high-quality instruments is on Mittenwald violins made in the Baroque period. The 19th and 20th centuries, as well as present-day workshops, are also covered. Samples to listen to and even smell, historical films on violin making, a reconstruction of a period workshop and temporary exhibitions make every visit a fascinating and varied experience.
