Local anthropology

Learn about the Rhein area. Good exhibitions on the Celtics, early human civilizations. Slightly "dull" presentations - needs to be spiced up more to attract children. Large space.

Very interesting concept, the museum shows the history in a very fascinating way. You don't have to follow a chronological circuit which is normally rather boring. The approach is thematic, you can use very good audio guides and learn a lot. The non permanent exhibitions are inventive, creative and very often inter activ. You can take your children they are...

Quite an interesting museum! Though might be we got lucky as they also have now quite an interesting temporary exhibition about beauty - where you can try several things on - like a perfume Napoleon wore. The permanent collection is a bit too diverse, nevertheless our son (7y) enjoyed it. Must-see are the Celtic and Neanderthal rooms.

I was actually expecting a lot more. I was actually expecting some kind of explaination of how Bonn and its surroundings had developed from nothing into the city it is today. But that is not the case. While the exhibits are interesting, there does not seem to be a common thread. There are a lot of Roman antiquities on display... More

This museum is very interesting, a great option for rainy days in Bonn. It is also very close to the central station and the university.

At the moment I was there it had a really interesting exhibitions, which however caused parts of the museum to be rather empty. If you are interested in Ice Age times and Neantherthalers, go here! There are also some really nice paintings actually, both of older times and modern. Very diverse. Therefore I loved it. No need to be bored.

Nice museum, but I think it's a little bit too chaotic... PRO: free audioguide english/german - detailed description of each piece of art - nice staff CONTRA: too expensive for their collection - everything is placed in a way that I'm still trying to understand (roman art together with paintings of 1945, then again roman art, and then middle age)...

Great Michael Angelo and Karl Lagerfeld Exhibit. This is the second time I visited this museum, a few years back I saw the amazing travelling Guggenheim exhibition here.

We found this museum to be very eclectically arranged, with no clear logical pathway through the exhibits on display, jumping from one subject to another and back again. That said, there are some very interesting exhibits that do provide insights into the history of the Rheinland, but it is quite patchy.

I couldn't resist an archaeology museum, especially one with the first-discovered Neanderthal bones in them. I was also intrigued by an advertised exhibit on Celts on the Rhine. So I wandered in today and, pre-warned, asked for an audio guide. Not only was the museum free with the Bonn Regio Welcome Card, but the audio guide was free, you just... More
