Museum for Hessian History

23-01-21 | At the beginning of Wilhelmshöher Allee stands the Museum of Hessian History, overlooked by its eye-catching tower. The building with its exhibition rooms was reopened in November 2016 after a general overhaul. During its careful renovation, the historic building fabric was preserved.

Inaugurated in 1913, the building by architect Theodor Fischer (1862-1938) is a mixture of Art Nouveau and Neo-Renaissance elements. During the extensive renovation, part of the original interior decoration was restored.

The roofing of the two inner courtyards opens up a tour for visitors through 300,000 years of (North) Hessian regional and cultural history. The Prehistory and Early History, Decorative Arts and European Ethnology collections are presented on three floors, providing a comprehensive overview from the earliest human settlements to the present day.

For the first time, it is now possible for visitors to climb the tower and enjoy a view over Kassel.
