Castl Orth Museum

The museum is located in the Castle of Orth , On the 2nd  floor with an area of about 700sqm.The basic idea for the museumORTH is to create an idea of the town and its community "Photo Album" for all generations and people that are interested. The staging area pursues the principle of a visual information medium, as a three dimentional "photo magazine".

Also for children there is much to see, especially in the children's corner, where there are many small stools carved from wood that hide secrets, which the children can discover.

In the north-west tower, 2-3 times a year changing exhibitions are held. With the active support of Orth´s beekeeping association, there  is presented a swarm of living bees in a showcase, with a trip hole in the tournament yard.
