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!

I visited Ulm and this museum last July. I was impressed by the the fact you get to see two museums in one: meaning modern and more traditional pieces of work. The building itself is very interesting architecturally speaking. The staff is very kind and...More

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.

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
