Mannheim Travel Tip:
The State Museum for Technology and Work (Landesmuseum für Technik und Arbeit)
The State Museum for Technology and Work
The State Museum for Technology and Work is not only remarkable for its unique architectonic exterior, but also for its experimental, unconventional exhibition program and design. The visitor is led through 16 stages, structured chronologically and starting at the top of the building, which display and narrate the technological and social changes of the last two and a half centuries. In 1992 it was awarded the European Museum of the Year Prize for innovation and creativity.
Some of the exhibits on display are working models and the visitor is given a demonstration as to how these function. Some have been reconstructed from scratch, others have been translocated in their entirety, such as a weaving mill, a paper mill and a Porsche manufacturing unit. The museum provides a unique chance to see fully functioning machines and manufacturing processes as well as quality control and safety procedures. The visitor is aided on his journey through two and a half centuries by relevant contemporary images and quotes which flesh out the historical situation.
Hours: Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9am - 5pm. Wednesday 9am - 8pm. Saturday, Sunday and holidays 10am - 6pm.
Admission: Adults 3 €, Concessions 2 €, Children under 6 years free, Family card 6 €.
