  • Beautiful collection of paintings ranging from 1400 to the present day, an amazing collection of 18th-century porcelain and silver distributed inside two period palaces, of which some original environments remain visible. In addition to this, there is an exhibition of archaeological finds from prehistoric, Celtic and Roman times.

  • You can learn about the history of heidelberg neighborhoods, mainly from the Middle Ages to the modern era. It was wide compared with the impression seen from the outside, and enjoyed it very much for the price. They rented a device with voice guidance (english voice) for free. There is a little restaurant in the courtyard of the museum exit, and it is good to have a cup of tea after seeing it.

  • Looks good from the outside but need to pay an entrance fee to see more
  • A gem of a museum. Walking past you might think it is an art museum, but the house is something to see, renovated back to what it might have looked like. Then there's the archaeology, and lots of finds and exhibits from Roman times. Porcelain, silver, glass. And ridiculously cheap entry for such a vast and interesting collection from local history.
