This quirky collection stashed in a former church is a lot more charming and intriguing than the name might suggest. Shelves are filled with such curiosities as the world’s first tinned food, prepared and packaged for Napoleon’s army in 1810, and cigarettes disbursed in specially made packets for the maiden voyage of the Titanic. You’ll see how, during World I, a popular British import cigarette, House of Lords, was repackaged as Herrenhaus, while some of the best-selling chocolates of the era were wrapped as bombs. Signage is mostly in German, but one of the helpful English-speaking staff will often join you to show off the highlights.
