Zeughaus Museum, Mannheim: 1 reviews and 1 photos


In January the Zeughaus Museum was opened. There had been plans to simply tear down this old building, but some private sponsors started a fund raising campaign and raised so much money, that we now have a wonderful new museum in a beautiful old building.
If you really want to see everything in there, you'll need one day. There are exhibitions about how Mannheim grew into the city it is now, about the theatre of Mannheim, there are historical music instruments, old and new fashion is shown, a fotographical exhibition is presented and much more!
Soemone there has a sense of humour, in between the display of the fashionable dresses you can see plastic animals to show how vain some dresses appear.
One of my favourite parts is the harbour scene. You can sit on a high chair in one of the harbour pubs and read the leaflets about emigrating to the US. In your back there are barrels, containing goods which used to be brought from the ships there. There are openings on these barrels for you to smell these goods, some nice - like chocolate, some not so nice, like tar.
This museum is absolutely worth a visit!
Entrance is really inexpensive, 2,50 Euro for adults, 1,50 Euro for children, unless there are special exhibitions.
