About Landesmuseum, Darmstadt

Landesmuseum is the reflection of a traditional natural museum in the city of Darmstadt. The glorious piece of architecture houses a wide collection of unique things from a broad sweep of European countries on display. In the museum you can glance at Dutch paintings of the 17th century, stained glass, engravings of natural history, German altars, mammal fossils, significant art and more.

The museum is also home to a pleasant cafe in its basement that serves lovely drinks and snacks. The 17th to 20th century galleries are a major highlight in the museum and should not be missed.

  • Very inexpensive museum for what it has. It is not a huge museum, but has 5 floors of really decent exhibits, great lighting, and well laid out historic items. The modern art part is a flop, but the rest was great. I especially loved the few reconstructed rooms and full armour sets.

  • Fantastic museum! Well worth the many hours you can spend here. Highly recommend the zoology exhibits!

  • I visited this museum on my last day in the Frankfurt area. It's easy to get to from Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof, and is 5 minutes' walk from the Schloss tram stop in Darmstadt itself. I mainly came to see the zoology and geology collections, and was not disappointed. Highlights include busts and cast specimens of a series of human species going back to Sahelanthropus tchadensis, well-curated taxidermy and skeletal comparative anatomy displays and dioramas, fossils from Germany, Greece, and Cyprus, a gorgeous display of minerals, and the American mastodon on the 1st floor. But by far the most important reason for my visit was to see the famous Messel pit fossils. These were (and still are being) discovered near the nearby town of Messel in a wonderful state of preservation, ranging from early versions of familiar mammals like horses and rodents, through to exquisitely preserved birds, down to the feather, and spectacular crocodiles and fish. Signs are mostly bilingual (English and German), and on my visit, staff spoke English very well. If you are more interested in the humanities rather than natural science, there are floors devoted to different eras of art, as well as some historical artefacts, but I did not spend much time in these areas. There is a cafe (seemed to be overpriced, so I did not dine there) and a well-stocked gift shop, with many German language books.

  • Small, but with a few outstanding pieces and surprises. Definitely check it out of you have time to kill in Darmstadt.

  • While not as extensive or large as the museums in Berlin or Munich it offers a diverse range of artifacts from all periods of history. For this reason its a good place to bring children or families.
