At the moment I was there it had a really interesting exhibitions, which however caused parts of the museum to be rather empty. If you are interested in Ice Age times and Neantherthalers, go here! There are also some really nice paintings actually, both of older times and modern. Very diverse. Therefore I loved it. No need to be bored.

Nice museum, but I think it's a little bit too chaotic... PRO: free audioguide english/german - detailed description of each piece of art - nice staff CONTRA: too expensive for their collection - everything is placed in a way that I'm still trying to understand (roman art together with paintings of 1945, then again roman art, and then middle age)...

Great Michael Angelo and Karl Lagerfeld Exhibit. This is the second time I visited this museum, a few years back I saw the amazing travelling Guggenheim exhibition here.

We found this museum to be very eclectically arranged, with no clear logical pathway through the exhibits on display, jumping from one subject to another and back again. That said, there are some very interesting exhibits that do provide insights into the history of the Rheinland, but it is quite patchy.

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
