Other visitors from the US saw the RI plate and now they have lots. The current muxeum is about 3x what it was when I first visited, and the keep expanding.

Did you watch the silent movie? The owner's mom used to play the piano during the movie.

I tell my German colleagues that that is what my house would look like if I wasn't married.
That was really cool of you to bring him a US state plate.

Silent movie? No where was THAT? I almost missed seeing the downstairs keller hidden behind the self playing piano! But on my second trip around the museum I saw the steps down into the Keller. I also saw in that last hall where the American cars were... there was "more stuff" upstairs(above the red helicopter)... but they had roped off the upstairs to museum guests.

I know I will go back there soon. In the Spring time(maybe ?) - I have always wanted to drive the Deutsche Alpine Strasse (B-500) that runs from Baden Baden down to Fruedenstadt. I need to go drive that road in the Springtime.
