The museum with its four exhibition halls is one of the ten most notable municipal museums in Baden-Württemberg.

Admission is free of charge on Saturday.
Major works of southern German art are presented here and include the most renowned German expressionist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880 - 1938), Baroque paintings from Johann Heinrich Schönfeld (1609 - 1684) and captivating genre paintings from Johann Baptist Pflug (1785 - 1866).
