Museum for Stained Glass and Artistic Handcrafts
Word 28, 06484 Quedlinburg
A Museum for Discovery and Hands-on Participation
The \"Wordspeicher is a historical building of a special sort. This storage building of the 17th century has been restored as a monument that can be put to active use for exhibitions. Here you can experience the functionality of half-timbered architecture in regard to the uniquely exposed beam structure. This authenticity and revelation of how half-timbered structure is related to the actual activities carried out in a building is special, even in Quedlinburg. The museum combines typical half-timbered architecture with the fascination and secrets of stained glass art. The glass atelier and a space for interactive demonstrations of the effects of light and color prove to be of interest to children and young people as well as to adults. These areas in which the visitor can directly experience the process of working with stained glass enrich the exhibition devoted to the importance and history of the Quedlinburg tradition of stained glass production.
