  • Great experience. A typical traditional museum where the visitor is a passive observer. The only thing personal in Museum have to think about is the fact that some visitors are not German speakers...

  • Fantastically arranged historic artifacts. The museum is really thought through and there is a lot of information presented. The audioguide covers mostly the prehistoric age and is totally worth it.
  • The new exhibition excels in showcasing single magnificent relics in an appropriate manner, but also manages to explain the connections and concepts behind single artifacts. I left the exhibition feeling richer in many ways.
