The Rheinisches Landesmuseum, that was already founded in 1820, presents various forms of evidence of the Rhine's history, art and culture. After its refurbishment and re-design, the building was re-opened as a subject-based museum.
The permanent exhibition is arranged according to periods and topics. It includes phases from the people of the Old Stone Age and Neanderthal man to the present day. Regular temporary exhibitions offer a unique view of the cultural history of the Rhineland.
The museum provides a comprehensive educational programme for children and school classes.
