I know this! Because I actually read about this Bread Museum in Ulm in Germany a couple of weeks ago! So I also know that in the museum there is everything you could wish to know about bread.

There are over 16,000 artefacts and shelf-loads of books etc relating to bread in this museum...but not one scrap of bread, not a single crumb, which must really cheese off the museum mice.

The museum is just outside Stuttgart but it's quicker to visit here... https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/museum-bread-culture

And if you think this is weird, just down the road there is a Museum of Snoring!!! Here there are loads leather chinstraps with attached mouth coverings, vintage humidifiers, and various ointments and nasal sprays on display.
There are even electronic devices they're cunningly made to look like blood pressure monitors but designed to zap snorers with buzzes and a few hundred well-aimed volts. Now, who said that the Germans don't have any sense of humour?
