Bonn Attractions: What to do & Places to Visit in Bonn
"This museums documents the history of Germany from the end of WWII till today. It start's straight on with the train car of the German chancellors as you come up from the Underground. After that it's on to the end of the war, showing items and pictures, but also eye-witness interviews that you can l..."isten too and videos of the 1940s and 50s. In the beginning everything is in one hall, then - corresponding to the division of Germany - the story is told with East and West Germany on opposite sides of each room. It's fascinating to look at one incident and then turn around a look at what went on in the other Germany at the same time.
The museum has lots of things to enjoy. If you read or understand German, it's a plus, but if not get the guided tour.
You should give yourself lots of time for this - 3 hours or more. Towards the end the exhibition is naturally more well-known and focuses on the political development and the EU, but also environmental matters.

"The museum is well worth the small admission price for a glimpse in Beethoven's life and death. Be sure to rent the headphones for the self guided audio tour, as just looking at the exhibits will mean nothing to you if you don't speak German since there is no bilingual printed guide. The museum is l..."ocated in the heart of the pedestrian mall area of downtown Bonn which has many shops, restaurants and other interesting stores, so there is plenty to do after going through the museum. You will be going up and down narrow stairs so the tour is for the able, but there is still plenty to do and see on the lower levels if you are unable to climb stairs. The gift shop is rather small but you can find CD's of practically all of Beethoven's works, as well as some of his more famous manuscripts. If you are lucky, you may be treated to a concert in the hall. Definitely a worthwhile experience to see when you are in Bonn.

"Apart from the pictures, busts, manuscripts, original instruments and memorabilia there's a really interesting digital archive where you can listen to any piece and look at the manuscript at the same time, or compare versions of the Appassionata sonata by different pianists."
