I couldn't resist an archaeology museum, especially one with the first-discovered Neanderthal bones in them. I was also intrigued by an advertised exhibit on Celts on the Rhine. So I wandered in today and, pre-warned, asked for an audio guide. Not only was the museum free with the Bonn Regio Welcome Card, but the audio guide was free, you just... More

This museum has something for everyone, small children liked the models of past times BUT also running up and down the sloping walkways and shrieking because their voices echoed! When we were there with three toddlers & a new baby the attendants were a bit fierce BUT other users very tolerant. I particularly liked the Art work especially Kandinsky at... More

This museum came highly recommended. Its a beautiful building, but I was not overly impressed with the exhibit we saw (birds & wild life). They have a nice cafe if you want to stay for lunch.

Very interesting place. The guided tours are good and you can learn lots of interesting facts about the region. Right next to the entrance you can also visit the restaurant which offers good food! If you are lucky and you have good weather, you can sit outside. You then have the chance to observe some nice old houses of Bonn... More

I personally took a visit to this museum as I heard that there is a nice display of archaeological and historical artefacts present here. I loved the display and the information was broad addressing a wide range of topics from the Stone Age to the Romans, all in the light of the local area around Bonn. There are a lot... More

They had a specialist theme display surrounding the Crimea and the Goths, Scythians and Greeks(if I remember right). Nice idea to colour code the different areas to match the different civilisations and a good amount to see with some truly stunning artefacts. We asked for an English guide (we didn't take the audio guide) but all they had was a... More

but disorganized since its renovation. We came late because we couldnt find it at first. The lady at the counter was rather grumpy and almost with a scolding tone told us just had an hour left. On the plus side she gave us a couples ticket which was half the price of individual tickets! Make sure to ask for such... More

The museum is one of the largest collections of archaeology and art in Nordrhein-Westfalia. unfortunately, after its rebuilding about 8 years ago, it is now organised on a half thematic, half chronological order. So if, like me you were looking for Roman and Frankish remains, you get to see most of the Museum, as it is dispersed all over the... More

Even though I am not a fan of thematical - as opposed to chronological - arrangment of museum displays, the one in Bonn was fairly good. The collection included some really interesting pieces, focusing on Romano-German societies in the Roman Empire. Other sections included an exhibition about Neanderthal, and Romantic Rhine paintings. A bit eclectic, but nice as a result:... More
