Internationales Zeitungsmuseum Reviews & Ratings
Nice local museum about the history of newspapers and media as well as about propaganda and manipulating the news. Sometimes they have extra exibitions. I enjoyed it a lot. They usually participate in the events when the museums are free in Aachen so if you are local you could save a couple of euros when going on one of those days
The woman at the kassa is a fraud who steals money from the visitors. Never ever go into that museum!
Nice Museum, multilingual displays
Nice museum to visit .It's a small newspaper museum with educational exibits and international periodicals and newspapers from around thé world. Inside their collection of over 200.000 newspapers you can find many first editions. It is amazing to learn how news was registered , printed out and published.
Amazing museum! They have the evolution of news and reading, they also have some cool stuff that might be the future of news. Worth a visit for sure.
