The lion man is the only decent exhibit. The museum is like a random collection of stuff. Most neolithic exhibits are replicas and fail to say where they were found. Blaubeuren museum is much better.

Very interesting collection of paintings from different ages housed partly in a very modern structure added to an old medieval building worth seeing. Yet, it is a shame many landmarks in Germany do not provide tourists from the rest of the world with the possibility...More

I only had time for the archaeological exhibit featuring the reconstructed Lionman (32,000-40,000) years old and originally carved from a single ivory tusk. Fragments were found in a cave and meticulously re-assembled with an estimated 400 hours of work. Most of the signage is only...More

We had heard about the wonderful collections at the Ulmer Museum, including the "Lion Man", the 30,000 year old sculpture, and the first known zoomorphic (animal shaped) sculpture in the world. We were somewhat dismayed when we came into the museum, and we obviously interrupted...More
