Heimat- und Handfeuerwaffenmuseum Kemnath

In the Fronveste, the old public prison


In the old public prison and the fortified tower of the Fronveste, you will find special treasures telling of the development of Kemnath and the surrounding area. Original finds from the Stone Age are displayed in the archaeology section of the museum. Mammoth bones, hand axe and other tools bear witness to an era long gone. With its largest collection of Fortschau weapons the museum tells the story of Kemnath’s arms factory that produced weapons for the Bavarian army until 1801. The MUSIKEUM houses musical boxes of all shapes and sizes.
