  • We visited the Bakelite Museum with a group of friends and we spent several hours admiring the objects on display. The variety of objects made from this material is enormous. A visit is recommended!
  • Today I was in the bakelite museum in Arlesheim. It is home to the world's largest Bakelite collection. Just amazing what there is to see. Shelves brimming with treasures from all over the world! From powder compacts to vacuum cleaners, everything is there...toys, instruments, photo accessories, radios, crockery, fans, ginger nillies, simply everything! I had no idea what was produced from Bakelite and I am amazed at the variety! The unique collection was put together by carpenter Joerg Josef! You have to bring a lot of passion and burn for something to be able to call such a collection your own! Respect! By the way, you can also touch things, take them in hand... in which other museum is that allowed!!?? Definitely worth a visit. There is also a bar with coffee, champagne and other drinks! Here we go! Schorenweg 10 in Arlesheim 👍😍 PS: Great idea for a company or club outing! 😉
