    We decided to use one of the rainy days of our holidays to visit this museum. The choice proved to be spot on. Compared to other visited, this museum does not offer multimedia experiences and what might be the long boring for kids. But since I don't fit more into that category, I appreciated what is offered. Spot the sections on ancient Greece and Rome; even more compelling, perhaps because consistent with the place, the parties presenting life in these lands since the middle ages. Don't miss the "Wunderkammer" of the Grand Duke of Baden, passion of noblemen of the time.

    A wonderful surprise. The Museum gets more and more interesting as you go up the floors. The ground floor antique collections are well exposed, but not overly rich. Much better than the medieval and Renaissance collections of the first floor to get to the wonderful second floor. The room ' Weltkultura ' has been carefully arranged to illustrate the cultural contamination between peoples and epochs, the next room tells the story of the nineteenth century beautifully yesterday. Unfortunately, as often happens, the descriptions are all 99% in German.

    Very good exposures, but very little information in English, only German. Count minimum 2 hours of visit. The tower is very friendly in the sense that it allows to realize of the architecture of the city. Combine with the Turmberg for a maximum of panoramas. Beautiful setting.

  • Very nice and extremely large applied arts museum, targeted at local school-age children, but with some really outstanding pieces.
  • I liked visiting the tower and watching some of the exquisite pieces, only thing I missed was having the explanations in english next to them.
  • 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.
  • There is so much things to see! It is really interesting.
  • Interesting Castle from the 18th century with some sites very well liked.
