I spent a short time in the Museum and was sorry as it deserves to be explored more comprehensively, It has some very interesting exhibits and if you are interested in history you will find it informative.

Konstanz has a rich history and this museum does a good job of giving an introduction to the city's significance as well as the Bodensee region. There is a significant amount of information on the Council of Constance.
