It is a nice museum but quite small and everything which is inside is already shown on pictures on the internet. So, if you are interested in history, go there, if you are a tourist like me, not knowing much about history, think about it :)

In the time of the corona-pandemic I also want to point out how well everything was organised, the stuff was also very friendly.

I was not impressed by this museum, only by a very friendly, probably, historian who happened to know the answers to my questions about this place.
Nice exhibits, paintings, majority of which are probably not the originals.
Developed the headache by the time i reached the third floor of this museum.

The Couven Museum presents how Aacheners lived in the late 18th and early 19th century. The museum was named after the father and son Aachen baroque architects Couven. During our visit they had an exhibit that span Germany in 1930 - 1960. The placards for this exhibit were in German but, it was easy to determine what these commonly used items were. This museum tells a great story of the life and times of Aacheners. Allow ~2+ hrs for your visit.

Because the major sights are relatively close together, you can easily reach this major site. I regard this as a must-see because it immerses you in the history and grandeur of Aachen during its time as the seat of power for kings.

Packed with artefacts including beautifully arranged periods furniture, pottery, landscape painting covering the walls plus a whole set of unique tiles from by gone times including a reconstruction of the pharmacy once run from here. You get a real flavour of life in this house of the centuries.
You must be able to climb stairs, there is a somewhere to leave bags & coats, toilets and a coffee machine with a small additional charge.
Not for small children and those with accessibility issues should check with the museum about admission before arriving.

Showcases the decor and furniture typical of the bourgeois in Aachen in the 18-19th centuries.
It also used to serve as an apothecary!
