  • If you think you might see something about Knauf, you are wrong. You can see many things about historical civilizations; like Egypt, Roman, Greek, etc.

  • The minimalist modern building itself right smack in the center of this idyllic Franconian wine town is amazing. It's perfectly suited for exhibitions. I wdnt to see the exhibition on the Franconian tribes and really loved the varied and well illustrated presentation including informative videos, illustrations, artefacts and models. The audio commentary is exactly right, not too long but informative. Sometimes I would have wished to see illustrations to have an idea how the artefacts were used.
  • This is a well-financed regional museum (funded by a local "Mittelstand", family-run industrial company), with a permanent exhibition space that includes some worldwide offerings (replicas of ancient Egyptian and Persian reliefs, as well as copies of Roman, Greek and South American items) and a large section for a range of rotating exhibitions. We didn't visit the permanent section, so I'm not sure if other language descriptions are available for that, but the temporary show we did see in autumn 2021 -- an archaeological show on the Germanic Frankish tribe that settled the local area after Roman times -- was in German only. (This is not a criticism -- this town, while pretty and historic, isn't a big site for foreign tourists, so it's probably not worthwhile to devote resources to translations -- if you decide to visit, just enjoy the view of interesting art or cultural pieces). Note that they're on winter break from early November 2021 through late March 2022.
