I went to two exhibitions in this museum: Die Duckomenta, and Ägypten. Die Duckomenta is not for my taste (masterpieces from all times and from all over the world recreated with either Donald or Mickey as the main subjects). Moreover, there was absolutely nothing in...More

We came upon this museum after wandering out of the Mannheim town centre in search of its cultural roots. We decided to visit the 'Medici' exhibition. At 12 Euros each plus another 5 for an audio guide in English, it was a little pricey, but...More
