Founded in 1825, the museum contains a collection of nearly 15 million items.

  • The permanent exhibition is very interesting and informative. The many time limited apart from exhibitions which not are. The staff is very nice and can help you. The prices are reasonable for the services believe. Only photos are not allowed which is a shame. Because the exhibition is very nicely designed. Just the sky disk is skilfully set. Way to go!

  • Highly interesting and well-designed exhibitions on exciting topics. The permanent exhibition and of course the sky disk fascinate me as well. If the mammoth is back, there's a high point. I like the architecture of the House.

  • One of the most beautiful and most interesting museums in Europe. Although relatively small, but all areas very interesting decorated down to the detail. Very good explanations and motivated staff. The NEBRA sky disk is a highlight. Definitely worth a visit.

  • Very nice Museum. Great special exhibition "War". The only negative point: the guards pursued a, da photograph prohibited is. I feel very uncomfortable, that is more or less permanently monitored.
