We visited the Richard Lionheart exhibit with our eyes wide open. Clearly, there are not many artifacts that survived until today. Those that did, have significant intrinsic value, so there is not much for the hands-on exhibit visitors. What the exhibit does well is displaying...More

The museum is located in an old fortress, so just seeing the interior is interesting (though not physically accessible). Signage is only in German as are handouts, but as always, docents are very helpful. Top floor is the more "modern" history - 1800's through WWI....More

The Museum der Pfalz (the Palatinate) is mildly interesting, especially the WWI exhibit of life in the trenches from the German soldiers' view. But most of the exhibits carry little in the way of English explanations. In fact I could only understand the WWI video...More
