The Glasmuseum Rheinbach founded in 1968 by Freunde edlen Glases e.V. lies at the heart of the Himmeroder Hof civil and cultural centre. In the permanent exhibition valuable glasses from the Baroque era to contemporary studio glass are displayed. The museum gives an overview of the art of Bohemian glass production and decorating.
A special department illustrates the development of Rheinbach glass. Glass manufacture has a long tradition here in Rheinbach, which deserves to be appreciated.
There is also a display workshop in the glass museum - the museum workshop - that can be viewed. Here you can look over the experts' shoulders while they are polishing, engraving and repairing glass.
