28 October 2022 to 16 April 2023
In 2022, the Museum im Schloss Hohentübingen will celebrate its 25th birthday. To mark this anniversary, the MUT is planning the special exhibition "Troia, Schliemann and Tübingen" together with the Institute for Prehistory, Early History and Medieval Archaeology. The legendary discoverer of Troia, Heinrich Schliemann, will also celebrate his 200th birthday in 2022, and the University of Tübingen can look back on more than 30 years of Troia research: reasons enough to choose "Troia, Schliemann and Tübingen" as the theme of the annual exhibition 2022/23 at Schloss Hohentübingen.
