Holiday Travel Guide
Hessisches Landesmuseum which includes heritage elements and interior views

Walk out the doors of this art and history museum with a new appreciation about the folklore, crafts and zoology of the region. 

From telescopes belonging to famous scientists to fossilized ancient creatures, the Hessisches Landesmuseum is a treasure trove of artifacts from the Darmstadt area and the surrounding regions. Gain insight into the the art and culture of Germany’s story.

The idea for the museum developed back in the 18th century, when Landgravine Caroline gave her son, Ludwig, a vast collection of scientific instruments. From there, the collection grew and was eventually given to the state in 1820. Visit today to see the results of the major 2014 renovation which unmasked much of the original architecture and modernized the exhibition space.

Spend hours wandering the exhibits at the Hessisches Landesmuseum. As you explore, look for some of the most special items on display. For instance, see fascinating fossilized bats, crocodiles, hummingbirds and turtles, forever carved into the local rocks.

Those who enjoy art can spend time appreciating the extensive collection of crafts dating back to 1500. Wander galleries filled with sculptures or learn about the collection of art from the Middle Ages. Detailed graphite sketches depict life in a past time, while work from the art nouveau period reveals the region’s close ties with this beautiful style.

Once you are satisfied with what you have seen, or if you just need to take a break, head to the museum shop to purchase a book or souvenir to remember your trip by. Stop by the on-site café to lift your energy levels with a coffee. It is the perfect place for taking a moment out of the day to reflect on what you’ve seen.

Visit the Hessisches Landesmuseum any day of the week except for Monday, when the museum is closed. There is a fee for adults to enter, but children up to the age of 18 get in for free. To get to the museum, hop on the train and arrive at the Schloss stop. The museum is also served by local buses, and there is nearby parking in the Q-Park-Schlossgaragen.
