15.000-year-old mammoth teeth, Stone Age hand axes, artistic artifacts from the Bronze Age and medieval village books: All this can be admired in the permanent exhibition "A Look Back - The Middle Ages and Prehistory of Rastatt" in the Rastatt City Museum. The exhibition in the vaulted cellar of the building takes visitors into the distant past: from the Stone Age to the Metal Age to the Romans, the Merovingians and all the way to the Middle Ages.
The city museum has original pieces from every era. Highlights of the show are mammoth teeth that were once excavated at the Röttererberg - a district of Rastatt. Or the Roman bronze statuette of a horseman, which workers found in 1963 during gravel mining in Iffezheim and which caused a sensation as the "Iffezheim Horseman". The archaeological collection is one of the first collections of today's Stadtmuseum, which was still called "Städtische Sammlungen" when it was founded in 1895. 126 years later, the same exhibition, which now features far more collection items, was redesigned and presented in a contemporary manner.
For little visitors: history to touch
In the exhibition, the story can be experienced in multimedia form with the help of a tablet, QR codes and audio sequences. There are also puzzle books with comics for young visitors. And those who solve the riddles get a "primeval" reward at the end of their visit to the museum.
