Rheinisches Malermuseum, Bonn

The Rheinisches Malermuseum (Rhenish painting museum) in Budapester Str. 23 that was opened in 1989 shows old equipment used by painters and varnishers such as dry colours, paintbrushes, brushes, furniture, tools for gilding, stencils and pigment grinders in a painter's studio from the turn of the century. Handicraft and painting items such as facade designs, ceiling and wall paintings, decorative painting, marble painting and drawings of all kinds bring the various techniques to life.
A history of the guilds of Bonn and Bad Godesberg documented by flags, documents from Master craftsmen and apprentices and written documents show the work of the painting and varnishing professions around 1900.
