Since October 2021, the German Castle and Fittings Museum has been presenting around 1000 exhibits and a large exhibition area in a modern new building and the historic Villa Herminghaus.
Since then, the development of locking technology has been constantly changing in order to protect people and their property from increasingly sophisticated burglary methods. It is the only scientifically managed museum for locking and security technology worldwide and invites you to try it out with interactive and multimedia stations as well as functional models.
