This is a wonderful collection ranging from prehistoric archaeological finds to recent times. All items are carefully described in German but only a few in English. As I can read German I did not enquire about guiding. The most unusual item must be the crown...More

Even when there isn't a special exhibit it is worth wandering around the castle and courtyard. I like the way items are displayed but sometimes no translation

I give 4 stars just for the fact that we saw the crown and sceptre of the old kingdom of Wurtemberg. Otherwise, this is nothing more than a local history museum with a labyrinthine layout. We went for a quick look and we thought we...More
