Dear visitors, the new measures adopted by the federal and state governments in the fight against the rapid spread of the coronavirus provide that institutions in the cultural sector will initially close to the public. The Badisches Landesmuseum, including its branches and branch museums, will therefore remain closed up to and including December 20th, 2020. You can still visit us at www.landesmuseum.de/digital
Thank you for your understanding and stay healthy!
Behind the Baroque façade of Karlsruhe Palace, you will find the Badisches Landesmuseum of art and historical landscapes, from prehistory and early history to ancient cultures, the Middle Ages, and the Baroque period, through to the 21st century. As a cultural and historical universal museum, exhibits cover Baden's culture in an interdisciplinary manner, through dialogue with cultural witnesses from all over the world, with a focus on Europe.
The museum's cultural and historical collections extend back to the two lines of Baden's margrave rulers, the Baden-Durlach and Baden-Baden families. These collections include the Kunst- und Wunderkammer, a collection of historical military and hunting weapons and an outstanding coin collection. The “Türckische Kammer” (Turkish Chamber), assembled in the 18th century, and the Türkenbeute (Turkish spoils of war), which combines Ottoman armaments and artworks, are internationally renowned.
Since the 19th century, the Grand Duchy of Baden and state of Baden have added so-called “national antiquities” and objects from the Arts and Crafts Museum to the collections, laying the cornerstone for a significant antiquities collection.
