This is a place where you either spend a lot of €uros or probably not a single cent. However, I do think it’s miraculous to just go there for a touch of the past. I mean, one doesn’t refuse to go to a museum because they can’t buy & take home the art that is exposed there, right?
And what I like best about this free ‘museum’ of antiques and oddities from 1670 to 1970 is that it is constantly changing its objects without changing the topic. In addition, you can take your stuff there if you want it to be restored or evaluated by a professional.
For shoestring budgets find the ARGE flea market just next door, Lorenz-Mandl-Gasse 31-35, which is open Monday – Friday (closed on public holidays!) 08:00 – 17:00. There you’ll find kitchenware or furniture and on Wednesday & Friday also clothing, CDs, etc.
