This is a great museum to learn about the history of Ulm and the building of the cathedral. Kids love it and it is located in the center of town so it is easy to access. Not to be missed if you are in Ulm!

The lion man is the only decent exhibit. The museum is like a random collection of stuff. Most neolithic exhibits are replicas and fail to say where they were found. Blaubeuren museum is much better.

Very interesting collection of paintings from different ages housed partly in a very modern structure added to an old medieval building worth seeing. Yet, it is a shame many landmarks in Germany do not provide tourists from the rest of the world with the possibility...More

Any museum, any institution pretending to the role of a world cultural center should, at the very least, have signs on their exhibits in what is an international language. Makes one feel frustrated walking between clearly interesting artefacts and not being able to read about...More

We went here for 2 reasons. 1. You can climb the 700 plus steps to the top of the worlds tallest Cathedral. 2. The Lion Man. 40,000 years old, hard to wrap my brain around that one. There are also some very old paintings by...More
