Biedermeier - Cartoons exhibit. German speaking a must for this one!
Apr 2018 • Family
I am a native German speaker, and a student of history. So I'm getting an awful lot out of their current exhibit "Gediegener Spott - Bilder aus Kraehwinkel."

Yes, by all means, see these cartoon drawings, that had appeared mainly in (heavily censonred) newspapers in the 1820s through 50s, through the Campe Verlag.
It takes quite a lot of concentration to get through all the captions, and to get the hang of the humor of this very specific period, and what's being depicted here.
Basically, the "Kraehwinkel" is a fictitious town (like the Burghers of Schilda), where the tradespeople keep finding new ways to outwit the authorities, the pretentious upper class, the tourists, while at the same time aspiring to the "finer things" to rise into the ranks of the bourgeoisie themselves. There are fun comments on morals, sex, drunkenness, all the cardinal sins are given a sendup.
Plus there are wonderful one-liners, bon mots by Johann Nepomuk Nestroy, a king of writing farces for the theater in his time.

All in all, a treasure of an exhibit, beautifully curated and worth all the trouble of deciphering the punch lines, and really getting the slapstick jokes of the illustrations. Glad I didn't miss it.

Forgettable

Another forgettable exhibition. To see only if you have nothing else to do in Baden-Baden. Uninspiring and curated without considering what the visitors may like to see or to know on the subject of music.

Exhibition ok for half an hour
Aug 2011 • Couples
We visited when the exhibition was "Elegant. Living.Then - The invention of the Bourgeois Family in the 19th Century". It dealt with social change illustrated but various household effects.

The welcome at reception was very good and admission was 7 euros. This was a little high compared to admission for other exhibitions in France and Belgium . An audioguide in English was available but it didn't half go on at length! I liked the paper silhouettes.

The exhibition was staged on two sparsely filled floors and there was nothing in the basement area.The building, air conditioning and the toilets were very nice.
