Exploring the city in heavy rain can take the fun out of it and that’s about where I was when I came across the Stadtmuseum. Entry was free with my Düsseldorf card which saved me €4 and there are lockers to put away rucksacks, wet...More

This museum has a great story to tell about Dusseldorf, but it doesn't tell it well. It is badly organized so the historical time flow is not always clear. There are many empty rooms with no evidence that they will ever be used.

An ok museum in the old town of Düsseldorf (Alt Stadt). Interesting collection and an ok place to visit. An interesting piece of artwork on the wall too.

If you want to know more about the history of Düsseldorf, you should visit this museum. Most of the descriptions are both in English and Deutsch.

Good exploration of the city's history, and free if you turn up at the right time. Shame you can't take photos inside though.

Had a free pass with the Dusseldorf card. Went with my teenage daughter. It was really quiet with only one other visitor in the whole building which was a shame because we saw some really interesting things. We loved the medieval artifacts and paintings. There...More

I visited the museum on a Friday in June, and enjoyed the outing. The museum was interesting, and I learned much about the city's history, from its beginning to today. The museum is a block east of the Rhein, and an easy walk to many...More

This museum is fairly large. It presents the city history in a chronological order, starting from prehistoric times. There are archeological findings, lots of paintings, and items like a carriage. I thought the anatomical models of a man and woman, for instructing nuns, were quite...More
