and we did not find much of interest in the permanent exhibits apart from the section on the cathedral/treasury. So it was not really worth the 7€ entrance charge. Most of the permanent exhibits only had labels in German and many (stone age, Roman, etc)...More

The Museum der Pfalz (the Palatinate) is mildly interesting, especially the WWI exhibit of life in the trenches from the German soldiers' view. But most of the exhibits carry little in the way of English explanations. In fact I could only understand the WWI video...More

I got the notion that the museum is slightly off the attention of foreign tourists though it is worth the visit. The reason might be only the German information of the artifacts is available. You may see all the significant artifacts of the region and...More
