Stadtmuseum Karlsruhe

History and tradition
The permanent exhibition of the museum, which is situated in the Prinz-Max-Palais, is dedicated to the history of Karlsruhe from the very beginning until today. The exhibition is divided into the following sections: Royal Court and Subject Territory (Fürstenhof und Untertanenstadt), models of the city, industry and workers, fate of the city between two World Wars, construction of the quarters and incorporation of surrounding villages. Realistically furnished rooms such as a pharmacy or a room in the Biedermeier style breathe life into the past. In addition, the projects “Commemorative book for the Jews in Karlsruhe” and “Digital Museum” that are being organised by the city's archive are hosted in the museum.
