Here you can inform about the history of the more than1000 yearsold city of Saarbrücken. The caves are impressing and also the history of the region. Highly recommendable.

The underground castle was kind of cool but there was absolutely no information in any other language other than German. So I feel that tourists should actually get it for cheaper as if you actually want to learn anything in the museum then it is though really.

Saarland took part in the Olympics 1952. Just one of all interesting things you get to know. And the building is great.

Excellent presentation of the local history. Reconstruction of an ancient fortification with impressing walls, water cisterns and underground buildings.

Only 5€ per person and definitely worth it. It's outside appearance is deceiving of its size. Majority of the museum is underground. Expect to spend at least 2 hours here, longer if you understand German or French. It is a great place for those interested in history and it is kid-friendly. There are many areas where you get to use... More

Great, great, great museum! I really liked that I was able to walk through the old castle ground place, to see the dungeon, touch the walls and learn more about Saarbrücken. The only bad thing is that writings inside of the museum are not available in English language, but you'll get a map written in English, so still workable.

A German friend took us here on a rainy day... she did a terrific job of explaining the exhibits that were not self-explanatory. She also put the exhibits in a real context by sharing her family's wartime experiences in the Saar region; as it has been part of France and/or Germany over the years. It was thought provoking but not... More

A museum for a rainy day when there is nothing else to do - yes possibly. The museum is pretty big - I give it that. But that also means that they haven't really specified in any area which makes the exhibition a bit messy. There is also no information in English, which would be appreciated for tourists of all...
