package museum

Ever even vaguely wondered about what goes into the complex packaging to protect your latest purchase? If the answer is yes – then there is a museum for you. From boxes to cans to plastic packaging every question you never had is answered, and more. The museum is modern and has great displays but little English. The Museum of Package Culture definitely gets a spot on the unusual museums list, but with free entry and information you wouldn’t get elsewhere – who can complain?
