  • I didn't expect this museum to be this large and worthwhile, the Lonely Planet doesn't fully reveal its richness. You should plan at least half a day here. To improve an already excellent experience, I recommend adding English translations.
  • Good to visit and know more about Heidelberg history. Not very big museum, 2 hour is enough to see everything.
