As you trot along the Rhine promenade, you will come across a building known for its extensive research and displays of ceramic art from all over the world. Quite an unconventional topic when you think of it, there aren’t many museums that are primarily on ceramics. Opened in 1909, the Hetjens Museum is named after the industrialist who contributed the most to the museum with Rhenish stoneware.

Dating back 8000 years, the ceramic collection is vast and divided up into regions of origin and type of ceramics (yes, there are types of ceramics too). With over 20,000 exhibits forming an impressive inventory, a cupola from erstwhile Multan (now Pakistan) is the biggest piece on display at the Hetjens Museum. The best way to tour this museum would be to sign up for a guided tour.
