Mother of Pearl and Local Heritage Museum Adorf


An exceptional collection from the entire region can be found in the city gate of Adorf.

It may not be surprising that a municipal museum with two permanent exhibits is located in the historic city gate of Adorf. In addition to the interesting display of more than 700 years of town history, the museum also has a very special exhibit: Germany’s largest mother of pearl collection. Over 700 items spectacularly showcase the colour variety of this natural raw material and the artisanal skills needed to work with mother of pearl at a time when the local Margaritifera margaritifera (freshwater pearl mussel) was still an economic factor in the Vogtland.
