Rheinische Landesmuseum Bonn Reviews & Ratings
Very cool place. We went for the knights and castle exhibit. 20 euros for two adults and a kid. Enough to look at. Some in English and German and also Dutch. Cafe attached. Right near main train station. Kids loved it. Activities for them to do.
Another Landesmuseum of outstanding quality. The Roman collection is superb but it's the early mediaeval collection which makes it worth going out of your way to visit. The "Lord of Morken" exhibit is particularly impressive. There is also a very good bookshop, something it is frequently lacking in museums both in Germany and elsewhere.
The museum is a little boring. There are many pictures, statues, small objects, but not too much information. I haven’t got the way they organized the exposition, periods are all messed up. Perhaps it’s me who went a wrong way. But I liked the temporal exposition consecrated to the medieval knights.
Fascinating artifacts and art works dating from pre-history to modern day. The museum is strangely laid out and all information is in German language only. I looked at everything on four floors and it took me about 2.5 hours, so don't plan an entire day for your visit. Definitely worth the time!
Very interesting museum. Especially if you are interested in Roman history
