I'll begin with the positives - the museum is a must if you're visiting Tubingen. It's worth the price of entry alongside exploring the castle for free. There is a free audio-guide available in many different languages, including English, on request and this is really...More

I don't know if the "Origins" exhibition is permanent but I hope it is. Taking you through human development from 40,000 yrs ago to today, largely through the medium of communication, it's well balanced and informative. I found the Ice Age mini-sculptures fascinating, the tuneless...More

It's a small museum but you can spend 1-2 hours easily. It would be an asset and more consistent if all descriptors could be in German and English. Tip: cloak room and lockers available to ensure a bag/jacket free visit

This was a nice museum- they have lots of different collections of statues and archeology. It's not too large and you won't miss out much if you don't go in but if you are interested in these kinds of things then it is worth it.
