Vienna Schneekugel Museum

Today’s excursion took me to the original Snow Globe Museum, located in the 17th district. The museum is situated in a quaint suburban neighborhood, where if you don’t look for the itty bitty sign-you’d miss it entirely. 
Erwin Perzy I created the very first snow globe in 1900 and got the patent for it. And 110 years later, the Perzy family still produces the snow globes by hand. The precise composition of the artificial snow is a closely-guarded family secret. Also, the water used in the globes are sourced from pure Vienna Alpine water. With each globe made by hand, no two are alike! How cool is that?
 Really? Who can see that itty bitty sign from across the street?
