Some 120,000 exhibits are shown on ca.750 m², including a unique collection of over 4,000 porcelain figures, some over 250 years old.

The Pigeon Museum already contains over 40,000 objects related to purebred pigeons, purebred poultry and carrier pigeons. And thanks to purchases and donations from all over the world, the inventory continues to grow in size and scope. Probably the world's largest collection of its kind, it displays, among other things, specialized literature, postcards, stamps, certificates, watercolors and porcelain figurines.
