Straubing not only has a lot to offer when it comes to beer and carnival culture but above all can boast a long and extremely rich history. People have settled in the Gäuboden region with its fertile loess areas since the Neolithic period. Today you can admire evidence of this colonisation in the municipal museum where you can stroll through a total of 7000 years of history almost seamlessly.
One of the highlights of the museum is definitely the Straubing Roman Treasures with their bronze face masks and impressive parade armaments which were probably hidden in the 3rd century from plundering Alemanni. The Bavarian Treasury however also houses outstanding exhibits in which almandine brooches, elaborate belt trimmings or precious glass jars gleam in the display cases.
Finally the departments “Straubing - Under An Elector and King” and “Sacred Art” devote themselves to the role of Straubing in the late Middle Ages and early Neolithic period as an important political, economic and cultural centre of the Wittelsbach dynasty. These departments provide a cross-section of the rich artistic creations in the Straubing region from the Romantic period to the Rococo period.
