The main focus lies on the era of the historical Kurpfalz, the golden age of Schwetzingen as the summer residence of the elector, the city's era of Baden and eventually the more modern times with the development of the first industrial companies of the food and delight sector. There are special exhibitions on a regular basis.
Blue is the favourite colour at all, no other colour has so many real fans. No other has such an interesting cultural history, is characterized by so many wondrous phenomena. No other colour has as much mystery and aesthetic potential as blue. Since 2017, the colour blue has finally its own museum, which now presents itself as a real chamber of marvels.
