German corset museum

The Miedermuseum (Corset Museum) in Heubach was founded in 1971 by the initiative of the mayor in Heubach Friedrich Schenk in collaboration with the corset producers located in the city at that time: SUSA-Werke GmbH and Triumph International. Triumph International remains operational in Heubach. The museum was located in the town hall until it was moved to the first floor of the Heubach castle in 2005.
The museum displays corsets made by the local corset companies, including woven corsets of which Heubach was a center of the manufactory in the mid-19th century.
It is supposed to be the oldest existing corset museum in Germany, if not the world.
Opening hours and other information are available on their website: https://www.heubach.de/start/freizeit_tourismus/museums+_+collections.html
