This is a fabulous museum that you absolutely must go to. Yes much of it is only in German but the room-sets are brilliant and the art is amazing - such a great number of masterpieces. It is quite hard to navigate (we couldn't find...More

I love this museum! This came highly recommended by my guide tour at the Heidelberg Castle, Haggar. From the outside, it looks like a normal building but once you're inside, it's a maze! One can get lost very easily. I wish they can organize the...More

This is a significant part of history following...More

This museum is much larger than it seems from the outside. I found the floor lay-out to be a bit confusing, and had to backtrack my own steps on a few occasions during my visit. The collections are comprehensive, but there's not much information available...More

If you are looking to pass an hour stop in to the museum. It is cheap, 3 euros and has quite a few paintings to see. Right down town. I wouldn't have seen the entrance if it wasn't for the sign of the Italian restaurant.

This museum sort of blew me away, so much to see, in fact too much for the limited time I could spend. Definitely one I would love to come back to sometime. Fantastic value for money.

No parking directly around the museum, it is pedestrianised. Parking further out is available and it is easy to walk.
