The Normans

In a cultural-historical exhibition, the Reiss-Engelhorn museums are showcasing the fascinating history of the Normans - for the first time in the German-speaking regions. A thrilling pictorial display shows how Vikings became Normans. Most importantly, we realise that networking is by no means an invention of the 21st century: the history of the Normans is the history of mobility, conquest and innovation. It exerted a formative influence on the history of Europe. With high-quality loans from great European collections, the exhibition highlights extremely topical political and societal questions from a historical perspective. Precious art objects, valuable items such as weapons and exotic trading goods reflect once again the cultural exchange between Orient and Occident.

Tue - Sun, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Closed: 24/12 and 31/12
