  • We visited often special exhibitions in the Museum. It was worth getting. The exhibitions are informative and never get bored. Also the standard exhibition is worth a visit. A great Museum. is the a must, if it is in Karlsruhe. Then you can walk in the Castle Park beautiful too.

  • I'm always happy here. Not only the Baden exhibition is great but also the extra theme exhibitions that there are again and again. Here are always abundant activities for the whole family (Kinderbastel, stories experience..).

  • "The Etruscans" is an absolute highlight the currently there ongoing exhibition. Should you do not miss! Very challenging and instructive! The location is already can't be beat in the old Castle.

  • 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.
  • Must-see in Karlsruhe! Unfortunately, destroyed the castle in the 2nd World War and original was restored only from the outside. Inside, the Baden State Museum, which offers a beautiful exhibition is located today. Museum extends over almost the entire building, you have to run something. Afterwards, you can still in the beautiful city park if the weather permits it. Overall very neat and Nice, in the summer but extremely hot because mobile only fans and air conditioners are set up, and it's no more or less in the building. Sometimes even rather stuffy air. There you could do anything else. I have nothing to criticize in the exhibition itself, which is nicely designed and you can learn much about the history of the country. Special exhibitions there is also regularly the change in place. Priced absolut ok. Worth it!

  • Extensive collections of art and historic lifestyles from prehistory and early history, antiquity to early modern times. Very interesting temporary exhibitions. The castle is impressively large and well maintained. In the Palace square underground garage, there are over 400 parking spaces for €1.50 per hour.
