Visiting this museum of arts, archaeology and history is travelling through time in a most fascinating way: The ›Lion Man‹ carved from mammoth ivory is more than 40,000 years old, which makes it the world's earliest figurative human/animal shaped sculpture.
Late Gothic sculptures and paintings give us an idea of the era in which Ulm Minster was built. The objects of the museum include sculptures by Joerg Syrlin the Elder and Michel Erhart as well as paintings by Bartholomew Zeitblom and Martin Schaffner.
The foundation ›Collection Kurt Fried‹ displays a representative cross-section of international arts between the 1950s and 1970s.
The Archive of the Ulm School of Design at Hochsträß, which also belongs to the Museum Ulm, documents the life and work of the famous academy between 1953 and 1968.
