Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take my bag and jacket into the exhibition?

Larger bags and rucksacks may not be taken into the exhibition. They could damage the museum artefacts or the display cases. You will find free lockers for bags and jackets in the basement. You will need a 1 euro coin for the deposit.

Is there seating available in the museum?

You can borrow a lightweight folding stool free of charge from the ticket desk. You can place the stool anywhere in the museum and rest or look at a museum object in peace and quiet.

How can my child discover the museum?

Children of primary school age can get on the trail of the „Thief of History“ as history detectives. The exciting rally offers the opportunity to discover regional history with all the senses. The sleuths get to know the exhibits and learn in a playful way how work is done in a museum. The children draw, measure and look at things very closely. Agent belts and mission blocks are available for 2 euros in the museum shop.

Is there somewhere I can park my stroller?

The exhibition can also be visited with a pushchair. However, you are also welcome to leave it with us free of charge for the duration of your visit. Please speak to us at the ticket desk.

Is the museum accessible with a wheelchair?

The exhibition areas are wheelchair accessible. A spacious lift is available on all floors.

Can I eat and drink in the museum?

Drinks and food you have brought with you can be consumed in the museum foyer. Eating and drinking is not permitted in the exhibition so that the historical artefacts are not damaged. You will also find coffee, cakes and hot food in the museum restaurant next to the ticket office.

Can I take photos in the museum?

With pleasure! But please only for private use and without flash, tripod or selfie stick. If you take pictures, we would be delighted if you tag them on Facebook or Instagram with #landesgeschichten #hdgbw. Professional film and photo shoots are only possible by prior arrangement.

Who do I contact if I have lost something in the museum?

In the museum, please contact the ticket office. If you only realise at home that you have lost something, please contact the visitor service. Mail: besucherdienst@hdgbw.de; Tel. +49 (0)711 2123989

Why is it sometimes so dark in the exhibition?

The exhibition on 200 years of regional history contains many historical documents. Paper is very sensitive to light. You may have left a magazine on the windowsill and seen how quickly it turns yellow and the paper curls. To protect the paper objects, they are illuminated with a maximum of 50 lux.

How long does a museum visit take?

In our experience, many people spend around 1.5-2 hours in the museum. If you want to explore all the exhibition areas in detail, it will take about 3-4 hours. So it all depends on you and your time budget.
