The King's Hall Museum has three departments which individually trace the history of Lorsch. This is the tobacco museum - a bright modern building. The museum has so many artistically displayed tobacco items from highly decorative clay and wooden pipes, pretty hand painted snuff boxes, the huge cigars which were manufactured here in Lorsch and my favourite - the wooden cigar boxes. Lorsch's links to tobacco and the men, women and children who worked in the tobacco industry are explained very well here - all in all a very interesting and informative museum.
The museum is open Tuesday - Sunday 10.00 - 17.00 closed Monday
