Paul Gugelmann Museum

Paul Gugelmann Museum | Heron | Scoop.it

Probably most of you don't know about the Paul Gugelmann Museum in Schönenwerd, Switzerland, because the web page (www.gugelmann-museum.ch) is not revealing much what will be seen in the museum and Paul Gugelmann never did sell his automata to private collections, his work was always accessible to the public and therefore never a subject on the big art market.
