Poorly arranged with no clear order. If they want international visitors they need to caption items in English - for specialist objects my limited knowledge of German was no use. In most galleries I was the only visitor and was followed like a hawk by the stewards which was very off putting. It contains some lovely objects but I found the whole visit dispiriting.

Stunningly excellent museum
Agt 2019
The Badisches Landesmuseum is a fantastic museum in the city of Karlsruhe as well as an important museum in Germany which houses plenty of works of art some of which constitute real masterpieces. The sight of the imposing building main façade is in itself a stunning view. That building used to be the castle of the said city, founded by the margrave Karl-Wilhelm from Baden-Durlach in the hub of the Hardt forest. It constituted his residence and that of the succesive grand dukes who reigned in the Baden State forming the line of descendants of the founder up to the reign of Frederik II during which the palace became the seat of the government. It turned out to a museum after the First World War. It's a magnificent edifice sonsisting of a groundfloor an two storeys in imperial style. It was refitted in such a style under the rule of the grand duke Karl (grandson of Karl-Frederik who, in turn, was the grandson of the founder, Karl-Wilhelm) and his wife Stephanie de Beauharnais. It has also a big octagonal tower in the middle at the back of the edifice, behind the main entrance, topped by a dome also octagonal shaped, and two smaller square towers on each end of the building which, as a whole, it's a crescent-like structure. The façade is splendidly ornamented and contains a marvellous pediment in the middle in front of the largest tower, the carved shield in it being outstanding. Before the roof there is a very artistic balustrade with statues on each side of the aforesaid pediment. Everything is thus of a great beauty.
The visit to that Museum is a very good way to learn about the culture and art history of Baden-Würtenberg. Items ranging from the Paleolitical to the contemporary world are there exhibited. It's amazing to observe, in a global panorama of culture history, objects calling up art, regional history, floklore and everyday civilization, that museum tending therefore to propose a more global conception of history of culture and human sciences. It's really great.
The portrait of the founder, margrave Karl Wilhelm of Baden-Durlach, most probably painted in Johann Kisling's workshop, ca. 1775, can be seen in that Museum. Likewise marvellous objects dating from the time when that margrave was in power, which were then used in the palace, can be there admired, such as a set of silver baptism elements, a breakfast set made of porcelain whose white of the paste and the good quality of the material are outstanding, a marvellous gilded bronze clock chiming pendulum in early neoclassical style ornamented with personifications of the four seasons. In addition, there are in the same section (The Karlsruhe Castle and Court) some valuable and beautiful objects appertaining to other time, such as an imposing Sèvres porcelain vase, dating from the first quarter of the nineteenth century, with the image of the princess Louise of Baden in her childhood, and a formidable deed-box for greeting cards on whose front the head of the Grand Duke, Frederik I of Baden, is depicted.
Furthermore, the gallery of the Dukes of Baden roughly recalls the relevant regional history. Dating back to the XVI century the art and curiosities room includes the oldest works of the Duke collections. There one can see the coloured wax statue of the Margravine Sibylle-Augustine of Baden and her two children by Anna-Maria Braun; a goblet with reliefs of planets and of Lucrecia. The reliefs are very delicately elaborated and the planets there represented symbolise the week days. It's a very nice work made of tender wood. Likewise a small monument representing the rape of a Sabine is a true marvel. It's made of several materials, among which ivory, wood, silver leaves, glass and brass leaf. Some Greek and Roman coins as well as medals are there exhibited. Among the medals, one made by Hans Schwarz, bears the effigy of Albrecht Dürer. It's an interesting one which was made in Nürenberg at the end of the fifteenth century or the beginning of the sixteenth.
The Baden Margrave's weapon collection integrates nowadays the most ancient units appertaining to the ducal collection. It's worth observing the great artistic value of some of such weapons owing to the valuable materials of which they were made, such as veined wood and slightly blued iron, as well as their technical perfection.
The Turkis buty (Türkenbeute) is an excellent collection even in comparison to other equivalent musem collection. It consists of a marvellous stock linked to a first class historical personnage, the Margrave Ludwig-Wilhelm of Baden-Baden whose image can be contemplated in a fabulous painting by an unknown author made in the 17th century. Apart from that, many other interesting items are exhibited in that section. Among them, the silver victory medal by Philipp Heinrich Müller, commemorative of the Margrave's victory over the Turkish army in 1691; a horse-cloth and saddle in ottoman style from the second half of the 17th century, made of silk, leather, metal threads embroidering, silver and gilded motives, and a quiver for bow and arrow also in ottoman style.
Other sections of the Museum are, for instance, that dedicated to pre- and protohistorical collections consisting of remains found on the territory which used to be that of Baden. It's amazing to see such remains ranging from the Neandertal age to the first Germans. Among those remains the decorated vases ought to be outlined. They reveal the development of a first agricultural farming having been called the stripped ceramic farming due to the typical ornamentation of its vases.
Many works appertaining to the Greek civilisation of the classical period are exhibited in that Museum. Into that civilisation flow the remarkable developments of previous great civilisations which had a glory height during the 3000 year period before Christ in the Middle East and Egypt. One can there feel an undeniable admiration for the beauty of the nearly abstract forms of the Cyclades, the precious ivory and bronze works of manifold personnages, of the ancient East, life alongside the Nile, in the way the ancient Egyptians represented it in their mausolea. The grand female idol made of marble from Cyclades is outstanding; but in fact all the works contained in that section are real marvels worth being observed carefully, particularly the Aphrodite statuette from Minor Asia dating back to the end of the second century before Christ.
In addition to the aforesaid sections, there are others dedicated to the following themes: Etruscan, Italics, Rome and Byzantium; the Romans in the Upper Rhin; the Middle Ages, and others arranged in pursuance of the successive historical periods. In that cncerning the low Middle Ages, for instance, there is a large number of Pietàs, each one of them conceived in accordance with different criteria. That Michael Erhardt elaborated in Ulm ca. 1500 shows a new type of Pietà in which the Virgin is knelt down on the floor supporting Christ's bust on her right leg erect. It's an extraordinary sculpture in which Mary may give way to all the compassion she feels for her son and present his miraculous wounds to the believers. In addition to that sculpture and similar ones, also in this section the Mary Altar of Salem is a gorgeous masterpiece. It was carried out by Bernhard Strigel at the beginning of the sixteenth century and the materials used are coniferous wood, linden-tree wood and tempera painting. The outer sides of the wings show the scenes of the Annunciation and the Visitation, and on the predella the placing of Mary in the tomb is depicted. The retable contains a carved and gilded scene representing the Virgin Mary and the twelve apostles. The contemplation of the altarpiece concerned is a dazzling one especially as far as the two remarkable inner volets are concerned. In that on the left, depicting Christ's birth, a light coming from the Child and illuminating specific parts of an imaginative space stands out. At the sight of such composite artwork sensitive people can't have but a thrill ascribable to its extreme beauty and charm.
Among the artwork ranging from the sixteenth to the end of the twentieth century exhibited in that Museum there are also very nice items worth being attentively beheld. The most eye-catching ones are perhaps the ivory sculptures called “Three women” by Leonhardt Kern dating back to ca. 1640, and “Perseus and Andromeda” by Adam Lenckhardt made in 1643.
The Badisches Landesmuseum is therefore a spectacular place where to go while in Karlsruhe in order to have an undescribably great moment enjoying at the sight of the marvels it harbours. In order to get a good insight of the whole the visit shouldn't last less than five or six hours. For obvious reasons that will most probably make one wish to go to that Museum again.

excellent special exhibitions
Apr 2019 • Sendiri
The reason for my trip to Karlsruhe had been a special exhibition at the Badisches Landesmuseum about 'Mycenae', the early Greek culture centered on the Peloponnese. In the course of my travels through Greece I had visited all the important places of that culture, especially Mycenae itself, but also Tyrins, Pylos and several others. Here I was looking forward to a compilation of all the knowledge one has so far about this period, and maybe a new insight.

The exhibition was well done, I got a good overview, but as I found out no real new understanding of this still in many ways enigmatic culture, which I had been studying two decades ago. Being there on a Sunday afternoon, the place was well visited by mainly German guests. Information boards and captions were in German and English, some even in Greek.

After the special exhibition at the ground level I went to the permanent collection. Especially rich is the archaeological department, which covers two out of 4 floors in total, with artefacts mainly from Germany and the Mediterranean. No wonder that the museum specializes in exhibitions about antiquity like the one about the 'Early Cycladic Culture', about 'Sardinia's Nuragic Civilisation', about 'Vandals in North Africa' or about 'The Etruscans'.

One could spend a day in this museum, especially if one starts reading all the information boards and captions, which are only in German this time. The two floors further up are dedicated mainly to German, and especially Baden's history from the late Middle Ages till today. At the highest level though there is also a part, which is called 'Global Culture' showing cultural connections between European and non-European civilisations. And naturally there is also the tower of the palace, which one shouldn't mss for the views (of which I will write in the review about 'Schloss Karlsruhe').

The whole set up is quite labyrinthine, but the museum attendants were all friendly and helpful. What I had been looking forward to see was the famous 'Türkenbeute', the Turkish Booty taken by Margraves from Baden, especially by Louis William, known as 'Türkenlouis', who as an Imperial Army Commander based in Hungary twice defeated the Ottomans in battle (end of the 17th century). Since I couldn't find it, the attendant told me that this part of the first upper floor is closed now. The lady couldn't give me any reason or time line, so I checked the internet, where the reason given for the temporarily closure were the preparations for a new special exhibition (19.10.2019 - 19.04.2020) about 'Kaiser und Sultan. Nachbarn in Europas Mitte' (Emperor and Sultan. Neighbours in central Europe). For me a reason to return to Karlsruhe and the Badisches Landesmuseum.

Nice museum

The Palace was built during the 18th century by the Margrave of Durlach who decided to leave the town and build the palace here sparking then the rise and development of what is now Karlsruhe. Inside was the Badisches Landesmuseum or Baden State Museum, with objects dating from prehistory to the modern times. Particularly interesting was the archaeological section as well as the applied arts one.

I thought I would spend a leisurely afternoon at this museum, but was absolutely mistaken. The galleries occupy almost all of the four stories (basement included) in this former palace. The handy guide brochure is aptly named, Art and Culture through the Ages, and that is not an exaggeration!! The environments include prehistory, the Romans on the Rhine Upper River, Ancient Cultures I and II, the High Middle Ages, the Late Middle Ages, the Renaissance and Baroque periods, the Age of Absolutism and Enlightenment, the Palace and Court in Karlsruhe, a Chamber of Art and Wonders with a Weapons Chamber, Turkish Booty (brush up on your history of the Turkish War in Europe in the late 17th century), Baden and Europe from 1789-1848, the Revolution in Baden, Baden and Europe from 1850-1918, Baden and Europe from 1918 to the Present (including perhaps to the surprise of some, Germany and World War II). I was therefore forced to pick and chose and concentrated primarily on the environments devoted to ancient cultures and then did a very, very fast almost run through the rest of the museum. Try to do some research ahead of time to plan your visit. There is a small cafe and photography without flash is permitted. And, if you are not "museumed-out," climb the tower for a fantastic view.
