  • The Museum is very interesting and well constructed, and not boring guaranteed. We have looked at some special exhibitions and never looked back. Also the standard exhibition is very good and interesting.

  • The Historical Museum of the Palatinate (German: Historisches Museum der Pfalz) is a museum in the city of Speyer in the Palatinate region of the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate. It is situated across the square from the Speyer Cathedral. The museum's focus is on the History of the Palatinate; it has a collection of about 1 million artifacts, the oldest being an approximately 190,000-year-old hand axe. The museum is among the most important in Germany, and is known for its special exhibitions. With over 200,000 visitors per year it is one of the major attractions of Speyer.[1] The museum was established in 1869 and the collections of the Historical Society of the Palatinate, the former Rhine District, and the City of Speyer were combined. The building at the present site was built in 1910 by architect Gabriel von Seidl; a modern annex was added in 1990. The museum is a trust borne by the City of Speyer, the Evangelical Church of the Palatinate, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Speyer, the State of Rhineland-Palatinate, the Historical Society of the Palatinate, and the Bezirksverband Palz(County Association).
  • Beautiful place very interesting
  • Nice Museum. Interesting section on wine.
  • Great collection limited signage in English.
  • A really nice museum with a lot of interesting pieces of roman history. But the special exhibitions, like the recent Titanic event, are really great. Always something very special. The restaurant inside under a glass roof is an island for relaxing. They have some special vegan dishes and the prices are okay. There is normally enough place. On special evenings there is even live-music. It also parts the regular museum and the building for the special exhibitions. Nicely done and a good idea. It might be a place to show you old stuff, but the museum is modern and amazing.
