The Landesmuseum is located in Karlsruhe Palace. The Palace itself has a very impressive façade as you approach from the town centre. The museum itself is mildly interesting - and entry is free on Friday afternoons. If you are feeling fit, you can climb to the top of the tower for views over the town and the park that surrounds...

For all history buffs out there, you need to visit this. Located inside the Karlsruhe Palace it contains one of the largest architectural collections starting from the ancient civilizations and the stone ages to the modern ages covering WWII and also the musics and sounds of modern times. There are especially beautiful pieces of Baden Wurttemberg royal heritage and it... More

Really big museum. You can spend all the day there. I have been there twice. The first I just saw the permanent exibition (it is already big and with a lot of different things to see), the second one I went to see the exibition: "Empire of Gods".

Its a nice museum with a lot of exhibits. I didn't like that in the first floor there was "treasures" from other countries like Egypt, Greece, etc. In other flooer there were objects combined with Kong Karl and his era. The museum could be better, if they kept a little the version where Karl lived. Every Friday,2 to 6pm, there... More

The Badische Landesmuseum is most definitely worth a visit, when in town. You can see many beautiful things and learn about the history of the city/region. The palace alone is worth visiting, and there's a tower with great views. The gardens behind the palace are beautiful with cafes, etc.

The schloss is undergoing renovation but this museum is open and it is a pleasant way to spend a morning. There is an audioguide in English which covers part of the exhibition. We really enjoyed learning a bit about the rulers of this part of Germany.the walk through the park is delightful

The palace (which the museum is in) is marvelous! We came on Friday afternoon and were announced that entrance is free between 14-18. Good! We wandered through the museum, nice exhibition and not many people. The highlight for us was climbing up to the tower, and see the whole city (almost...) from above.

If you have the chance to visit this historical museum please don't miss it. I have seen there an exhibition on the pre-historic cultures the upper Rhine Valley. The museum itself was already worth the visit. Even when there is no exhibition you will find beautiful and fascinating exhibits of the whole area of Baden-Württemberg from pre-historic times and the... More
