The Historical Museum of the Palatinate regularly puts on large special exhibitions geared towards people interested in cultural history or families. It also has a cultural and historical collection touching on the history of the region.
Visitors interested in the cultural history of the Palatinate will learn plenty of interesting facts in five permanent collections (Prehistory, Roman Times, Cathedral Treasures, Modern Times and Wine Museum).
Outstanding exhibits include the Golden Hat of Schifferstadt from the 14th century BC, the Celtic Ring from Rodenbach from the 4th century BC and the centaur's head from Schwarzenacker from the 2nd century BC. The building also houses the cathedral treasures and the Wine Museum. Munich-based architect Gabriel von Seidl designed the building, which was inaugurated in 1910, as a four-wing palace complex. In order to bring the museum up to the latest standard, it was completely renovated at the end of the 80s and a new building was constructed to house temporary exhibitions.
PfalzCard holders get free admission to the collection exhibitions.
Open Mar 12, 2021 through Dec 31, 2021 from Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat and Sun 10:00–18:00
