Clean, modern, interesting pieces. Not much info available in English so be sure you've got translate open. Also goes into Aachen history both before and after Charlemange which is nice

We came to Aachen as a day trip and found Centre Charlemangne next to The Cathedrale. The Museum is compact but has stacks of information dating back to Aachen’s early begins right up to present day. We spent about 90 minutes in the Museum and it was time well spent. The only disappointing aspect for us was that we weren’t offered the English audio which meant we weren’t able to understand everything as some of the information is in German but still a pleasant time and would recommend to anyone wanting to find out more about Aachen’s past.

It's an interesting diverse museum and worth spending the 2 euros for the audio guide. We spent about 2 hours here. There was a really good exhibition of photos taken by a GI back in the 40s and 50s. If its still on (we were there towards the end of June) I highly recommend you take in the exhibition as well as the museum itself..

I have read a lot about the history of Aachen and of course Charlemagne so I was excited to start my visit here. I chose not to use the audio guide for the same reason. Sadly the reception wasn't very friendly and you almost have to beg for a ticket to enter the exhibition. As I walked between the exhibits a security guard walked up to me and wanted to check whether I have a ticket for the museum. I still do not understand why as this has never before, or since, happened to me. This spoiled the whole experience for me Still I found the exhibits regarding the Cathedral very interesting Just because I had a bad experience there doesn't mean other visitors will not be happy to have gone there

The museum is not that big, but contains a lot of interesting items. You will appreciate them so much more when you make use of guide. Our group loved it. The guide knew a lot and had a great feeling for humor. Really worth it and you enjoy Aken so much more later on.
