“Layout can be confusing; little explanation in English”

Museum of the Palatinate (Kurpfalzisches Museum) and restaurant
Ranked #21 of 105 things to do in Heidelberg

Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The Historical Museum of the Palatinate (the name for this region of Germany, derived from the Latin word palatium, meaning “palace”) references the period in Germany history during which it was ruled over by a prince of Holy Roman Empire. The floor plan of this museum is rather confusing as we had to pass through a special exhibition area (requiring a separate ticket) in order to visit the museum’s small Luther Room, which includes a film about the history of the Reformation, a Luther Bible and a copy of the Heidelberg Catechism. Note: Exhibits are mostly in German so have Google Translate ready to go. The Wine Museum exhibit features the oldest bottle of wine in the world.

Its a great hodgepodge of artifacts and curiosities from centuries of regional history. Great for museum lovers! Lots of corners to explore.

We actually ended up here because we had some down time, not because we specifically sought it out. I'm so glad we did! It's a smallish museum, and with the audioguide, you go through the history of the area, from Roman times (some interesting archaeological exhibits) through the electorate to modern art. It was really interesting and a very pleasant experience!

I found this an interesting museum, though when I went everything was in German. Perhaps what really struck me was the elements that showed the Roman presence in the area.

This is one of the better museums we visited while in Germany. This is a large collection but a 1 1/2 hour time investment will leave you with the feeling that you've covered what you wanted to see. Something for everyone!
