Thank you for the great valuation. We're sorry that the explanatory texts in the exhibit are only in German. But we do have a mediaguide for our English speaking visitors. The guide offers a great deal of detail on the exhibitions, the stories behind them,...More

As a history major this is a gem. It tells the history of Baden Wurttemberg over two hundred year period. Even has its own forest within the museum. Also known as the House of History and is designed to particularly appeal to school age children.

Excellent city and state museum - esp good on 19th c , 20th c , Nazi era , 1950s , 60s etc. Much better museum than Landesmuseum , at least for me , if you like modern history .
