Musée Suisse de la Machine à Coudre (Swiss Sewing Machine Museum) Review

An example of almost every sewing machine ever built (more than 250) is on exhibit here. There's also a collection of contraptions created to ease the life of handworkers and housewives before the age of electricity, including useful household firsts such as vacuum cleaners and washing machines. A side room is packed with curiosities from bygone days, such as chestnut-hulling boots. Owner Edouard Wassmer will charm you with anecdotes and history.
