It's really just an excuse to sell merchandise. Possibly some interest for children who don't know the history of how Christmas is celebrated

It is called a Christmas museum but only had a small section with some history of Christmas decorations and how they evolved. Not impressive. The shop is however quite nice and has a very good collection of unique Christmas decorations.

Pleasantly surprised. The museum describes the history behind many different Christmas and holiday traditions. They include many examples from Germany and around the world. Examples included are trees, ornaments, advent calendars, greeting cards, and lights. There is a modest admission charge.

Nice museum, with a lot of interesting things displayed that make you understand the evolution of Christmas traditions. Unfortunately when we visited it, it was partially closed.
