  • Good to visit and know more about Heidelberg history. Not very big museum, 2 hour is enough to see everything.
  • Fantastic museum of art and history, beautiful works and lots of stuff to see. Time period all the way from prehistoric to Celtic, Roman, Medieval, Romantic, and more. Only problem is most of the explanations are only in German and they don't let you use your phone to translate because they don't allow pictures... Or at least the one caretaker we ran into said so.
  • Incredibly racist staff who clearly hate foreigners and especially people of color - the woman at the entrance was overjoyed after trying to find excuse after excuse to not let us in when her last attempt at blocking us (“cash only”) worked! She smiled so big, I was in shock. What a shame to experience racism as an American in GERMANY of all places!
  • Great place to know the local history. Wonderful art and old artifact. The cost of the ticket almost symbolic And the most amazing thing is that it was almost empty A shame that all the tourists are outside walking and shopping not visiting this museum
