I find it hard to criticise this museum because its supporters have worked hard to open it and keep it open., but I had such great expectations and was hugely disappointed. The large House of Aachen as it is also called has been important since 1931. It lies below the Market Square and is an example of earlier domestic architecture.... More

There are lots of displays - most have an English option. The inter-active displays are all multi lingual. The Old Newspapers are in whatever language (mostly German) - But they are illustrating styles and designs ... You don't need to read the words. Quirky - Yes ..

The international newspaper museum in Aachen is a nice place to visit. It is situated in the city center, very near to the town hall. There is a cozy cafe in the ground floor and the museum is in the first floor. There is a section where one can see manipulated/fake photographs published in newspapers. This section is worth a...

Since German is not one of our languages we asked the old gentleman at the ticket desk if there was information in English. He managed to tear himself away from his sandwich to say "yes" and on that basis we paid our €10 each and climbed the stairs. We found very little information in English, some 30% of the electronic... More

This small museum has recently been refurbished. It features the history of communication, and hence is much more than only a newspaper museum. The museum is very interactive, with many touch screens and other gagdets. That is nice, but I would have preferred to see more fysical artifcats. Reading on a touch screen rather feels like looking at a website:... More

The newspaper museum on the second floor had an interactive display that was dynamic to wander through. You could open drawers to read more about every aspect after seeing the initial basic displays, but the atmosphere was so hot and airless I got out fairly quickly before I passed out. I would suggest more captions in English might help refine... More
