Wolkoff House Museum

The Wolkoff House was a family home for four generations. It was donated as a museum in 1986, by the heirs of Johannes Wolkoff. In addition to the commercial facilities, the house features seven rooms and a kitchen. The house was opened as a museum in the summer of 1993. The former shop is now a museum gift shop and is the starting point for guided tours of the house.
