Hessisches Landesmuseum

Museum in Darmstadt

An exceptional selection of works by pop artist Joseph Beuys is the highlight of the wide-ranging art collection at the Hesse State Museum. Other displays include art nouveau pieces from around the world, along with artworks spanning the prehistoric, early history and medieval eras. There's an extensive zoological section and fossils from the nearby Grube Messel pit. The museum is two blocks northeast of Luisenplatz.
