The German Leather Museum has a collection of works made of leather and related materials. However, for some time now, the assortment has also specifically included other exhibits made of alternative fabrics and materials. The oldest specimen in the museum's collection dates back to the 4th millennium BC. These are lovers' pants and slipcovers, but also samurai armor. For the first time the German Leather Museum opened its doors on March 13, 1917, and since then the museum has become very popular and a favorite destination for visitors.
