Wiesbaden offers a wonderful variety of museums to ensure that you won’t be the slightest bit bored during your visit here.
The Wiesbaden Museum (Friedrich-Ebert-Allee 2) is an extensive collection of painting, natural history and antiquities. The Russian artist, Alexej von Jawlensky, is heavily represented here with over 90 works of his art on display.
The natural science wing contains geological samples of minerals and fossils, as well as exhibits of plants and animals from Europe, the tropics and the Arctic. And the third wing features fascinating Nassovian antiquities from 200,000 BC!
If that wasn’t enough, the museum has been recently renovated to enhance your experience here. With glass ceilings, covered courtyards and all those exhibits, there has never been a better time to visit Wiesbaden Museum.
Freudenberg Mansion Interactive Museum
The Freudenberg Mansion Interactive Museum (Schloss Freudenberg) features over 50 experimental stations that allow you to challenge and stimulate your senses. From sounds, vibrations, scents and light, you are encouraged to use as many senses as you can to appreciate this interesting Wiesbaden museum.
