  • Within the castle of Karlsruhe recommend to visit this Museum, which showcases ancient finds from all periods, in a very simple but clear. Not very big but requires at least a couple of hours for the visit. Recommend that you visit the tower for a panoramic view over the garden and the surrounding area, but you have to climb many steps on foot.

  • This was an outstanding museum with lots of interesting things and it was laid out very well. It had things from Stone ages through to the modern day. My only gripe (and reason for not giving 5 stars)...  more »

  • Great museum and in my opinion the main cultural attraction in this city. Not only are the tickets very inexpensive and offered at various discounts for students, but the museum itself is very large and covers the entirety of German history, from prehistoric times to Romans to knights to Bismarck to the Third Reich to modern day. The latter somehow oddly includes a Japanese magazine about girly girls wearing a great amount of fake tan. The staff is generally quite friendly and there are not many people there. The topics are also often presented in a way that might interest children and include a train journey audio play and a gigantic weapons collection. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone interested in history.
  • In the winter it is a popular place by me... again happy to... and trappings serve sweet pastries... Again happy to... Tip sonja Kunkel going to go look at what ...und lernen...lach

  • The collection is very interesting and has me as excited kids. One star deduction because there is no English or French descriptions (we were with students there). This is outdated in many foreign guests in Karlsruhe.

  • The family exhibition is compiled with much imagination. The kids had their pleasure, also the climb to the Tower will be rewarded with a magnificent view.
