The historical timeline of Jena is very nice, but everything is explained in German. I found the contemporary expositions not very nice either...

We were a group of friends being definitely interested in local culture and the traditions of the area, hence went to visit the museum. We were impressed by the collection of artefacts demonstrating how people have been surviving centuries ago, as well how the area...More

Have been here several times with visitors to Germany. Once with a family member who spent a significant part of her child hood in Jena and Kunitz. An honest, entertaining and informative look at the history of Jena, which is formidable!!!

Visited this with a woman who spent her primary school years living in Jena prior to the GDR. Splendid representation of life as it was.

The Stadtmuseum in Jena does not appear to promise much. Take a small town in former East Germany and what can be so interesting? Only, that in times gone by, it was an important town in the Hapsburg Empire. I arrived around 3p.m. and paid...More

I live around the corner from the Stadtmuseum and have gone at least five or six times - by myself, with friends, and on dates. What I like about the Stadtmuseum is that alongside a non-changing exhibition on important elements of the city's history, there...More

When I visited Jena, the last days of the 3 month long art exhibition of paintings by Henry van de Velde and other impressionists and neo-impressionists was on. Though I couldn't catch the full impact because they had no English audio-guides, I still enjoyed the...More
