The Pforzheim Technical Museum is located about 1.5 km south of the city centre in the same building as the Pforzheim Galerie. The museum mainly houses clock-making and jewellery-making machines from various eras. Admission to the interesting Pforzheim Technical Museum is free.
While the jewellery-making machines are on the ground floor, the clock-making machines are on the first floor. Several competent employees show visitors how the machines used to be worked and answer every question willingly and in detail. Several hundred old machines have found a new home in the museum.
