for everyone something. the museum is a composed of several houses under one roof. Very local medieval art in superb condition and great expressionist. I am not so sure about the Lion-man, the largest stone age sculpture. But it is famous. Lovely café and gallery shop. Do not miss out to go onto the roof garden, barrier-free view of the... More

Small museum in a modern building. We only visited the ground floor Löwenmenschen exposition around the main attraction, a 35,000-40,000 year old art object of about 35 cm made of mammoth teeth. Nicely lighted, but very limited explanation in English, summary of the German info. Very much worth to spend an hour when you are already in Ulm.

Weasked several people and no one... More

I was there this summer attending the biennale, the curator is really nice and the museum itself offer large artshows spaces, the selection of works is also quite interesting and well separated in different areas of the museum ( I have seen my first Rothko there! ) Lovely book shop!

Housed in both old and new buildings, the Ulm museum features a nice permanent collection of the ancient history of Ulm and art from the middle-ages. The newer addition to the museum was beautifully designed and includes excellent gallery spaces. The location on the Marktplatz makes it convenient to see the Rathaus and walk to the Danube. Personnel at the... More
