The Museum LA8 on arts and technics of the 19th century opened in April 2009. It is located in the Kulturhaus LA8 and is part of the Baden-Baden Museum Mile.


The exhibitions at the Museum LA8 explore the interaction of art and technology. Every 6 months a new themed exhibition is opened and handles a new topic from the "long" 19th Century which was especially important for Baden-Baden. According to the museum this approach is unique in the German museum landscape. Each exhibition is prepared in a preceding symposium.

The museum attaches special importance to the educational offerings. The "museum as a place of learning outside school" offers programs for school classes as well as for private groups and individuals.
