Very good museum with 7 main exhibits, all for only 8€. Full of life size dioramas of medieval times in Celle and as the town evolves over the next few centuries. Very family friendly and accessible. Good overall history museum.

The museum is next to the St Mary church in the city center. When I came here, the museum was closed already. The architecture of the museum is very nice. Worth taking some photos.

While almost everything thing was closed on Mondays in Celle I appreciated very much the chance to see this museum. The historical collections are well explained, unfortunately my foreign colleague had to rely on my translation, as only very few explanations in English were given.

The Bomann Museum tells the story of Celle and of life in the surrounding Lüneburger Heath. There is a lot of military history in the place and the royal connections with England.
