Glockengiesserei GrassmayrCurrently Open [Closes at 05:00 pm]
One of the most under-rated senses is sound. A mere sound can convey so many emotions, and it’s played an important part in history be it a cry of war or declaration of independence. One instrument of sound that has been used to convey defeat or victory or impending doom is the bells. The 400 year old Grassmayr Bell Foundry tells you everything you need to know about the art of bell making, watch the casting process, hear them being tuned and even ring a few all of different musical notes. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Innsbruck itinerary 2 days.

Really beautiful museum for all the bells lovers
A new experience
A small place in Innsbruck that has a good collection of different kinds of bells. We missed having a look at the 5 ton bell. The small souvenir shop also has good collection of bells. I managed to pick an Indian style Puja Bell and a cowbell (of DDLJ fame) here!!
A unique museum in the world, devoted entirely to bells and bell making. It's not very big, but it really offers a one of a kind experience. A great plus is that several exhibits are interactive, so kids can learn a lot about vibrations and tones
This museum is decent, provided you visit with an all-inclusive pass like the Innsbruck card. I wouldn't say it holds up on its own. The museum is a series of about 4 rooms, one of which is a video detailing the making of a large bell in the workshop attached to the museum. I went free with the Innsbruck card, and it would have been €8 without. It might be more fun if you have kids: there are quite a few bells in the 3rd or 4th room that you are allowed to interact with (aka, smack with mallets), but in terms of learning and appreciating things as an adult, there's not too much there. Just a scattered assortment of bells with date labels, and the video.
