Markgräfler Museum Müllheim im Blankenhornpalais (Markgräfler Museum in the Blankenhorn Townhouse)
Built around 1800 in the early classical townhouse style, with architectural influences taken from neighbouring France, the Blankenhorn townhouse was initially the guesthouse "Zur Krone" (The Crown), run by the Blankenhorn family (a prominent Müllheim family - Adolf Blankenhorn was the first president of the German Winegrowers Association in 1874, his son was chief of the Baden police until removed in 1933 because of his opposition to the newly empowered Nazi party, and his grandson was a post-war ambassador, first in Paris then in London).
After 1830 the property was extended with two newly designed wings, with the north wing including an English winter garden of cast iron and glass construction. In 1953 the property was purchased by the town of Müllheim and used until 1973 as the town hall.
Since 1974 the property has been the home of the Markgräfler Museum which after two expansions has become the most important museum of history and art in the region (open Tuesday to Sunday 14:00 - 18:00 with €2/adult entrance fee).
